The school, where fees cost from £17,604 a year, has been described by the Good Schools Guide as: “A big, busy, slightly chaotic school for cosmopolitan parents who want their children to have the best English education money can buy.

The guide, which said 19 languages are spoken in the homes of pupils, added: “The school celebrates and appears to make the most of this range of different cultures.”
