Small classes and specialised subject teachers offer the boys a high level of personal attention and expertise.

The School consists of a Junior School (Years 1-4) and a Senior School (Years 5-8).

Each year group is divided into two forms.  In all year groups, the school endeavours to ensure that there is parity between each pair of classes. The composition of each class is reviewed every year to ensure social refreshment and academic balance. Setting is used in some subjects from Year 3 upwards in order to secure some structured differentiation.

The school aims at an ideal class size of between 18 and 20 to allow for  a good degree of personal attention for each boy. Classes in Years 1 to 4 are taught by form teachers for most subjects with specialist teaching in PE, Computing, French, Music and Art. From Year 5 onwards, all subjects are increasingly taught by specialists.
