Over the last few years our school has undergone significant rebuilding and redevelopment to ensure the facilities, layout and fabric of the buildings fully support the delivery of the School’s ethos. The School occupies two sites - Byron House and Senior House, some 200 yards apart, across Grange Road from the extensive playing fields owned by and shared with St John’s College.
