Many of the boys attend Stanfield Mixed Infants and Junior Girls’ School before coming to the Junior, and then Senior Boys’ Schools.

Facilities include a brand new sports centre with climbing wall, fitness suite, sports hall and dance studio. There is also a heated indoor swimming pool on site, a language laboratory, extensive playing fields, fully equipped science laboratories, an art and design suite, cricket nets, a self-contained music block and a share of Northern Club’s facilities. The schools also have their own shop.

About 200 boys receive weekly instrumental tuition and there is a subsidised scheme for beginners on orchestral instruments. There is a School Choral Society, Junior School Choir, Senior Concert Band, Swing Band and a Junior School Brass Band, all of which perform frequently inside and outside the school. These are in addition to a number of smaller ensembles which ensure that all musical tastes are covered. There are 10 visiting specialist music teachers and close links in music with our sister school, Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School. There are also close links with the Girls’ School in Drama, which now forms an integral part of the Upper School curriculum as well as being a major extra-curricular activity. The Senior Schools work together on Joint School productions throughout the year.


School assisted places are available by both merit and means.
