Your child will join a school that recognises their potential in all areas of the curriculum. Whether they join Friends' in the Junior or Senior School, the focus will be on academic progress within a framework of all-round development.
At Friends' School, your child will find a strong sense of community that unites all members of the school - boarding and day pupils, teaching and non-teaching staff - regardless of age or position. We believe that learning happens most effectively when relationships are based on mutual trust. This supportive environment results in secure, happy students who are able to meet intellectual, creative and physical challenges with confidence throughout their school career.
Quakers believe that there is something of God in everyone. This belief influences all relationships within Friends' School and creates an environment where your child will be treated as an individual and integrated into the community. Individuality is cherished and pupils and staff show respect for the dignity of others.
It is because of the Quaker heritage of the school that we welcome children from all religious faiths, as well as those with none. While our assemblies are based on Quaker silent worship, they are inclusive and respect the religious backgrounds of all our pupils.
