What do a watermelon trebuchet, a yurt and a eco-classroom have in common?

They are all projects undertaken by our ingenious pupils The trebuchet fired watermelons across the Nevill field. The yurt was constructed from wood and canvas cut to size by the students themselves. It housed two dozen comfortably overnight. The eco-classroom was designed in collaboration with local architects and this year’s scholars are readying the winning plans for building approval. Next year we should start the build.

We have 140 acres of wonderful grounds and an unlimited number of eccentric, daring and extraordinary ideas – the rest is up to the children.
