“The growing house system encourages competition between not only students but also staff, which creates a real community feeling, making it an enjoyable place to work.” … Head of Humanities
“I’d definitely say our INSET and CPD programme/sessions are far better than anything I’ve seen or heard of from other schools.” … Head of Art
Ofsted recognised our truly innovative approach to delivering personalised CPD. Inspired by Harry Beck’s London Underground Tube map, our staff (passengers), choose their destination, the lines they wish to travel, and the stops they want to get off at. Many staff are also drivers sharing their expertise with colleagues.
The Local Area
High Wycombe is a bustling town with a thriving shopping centre which includes both department stores and smaller independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, Wycombe Swan Theatre, a multi-screen cinema and bowling alley. A recent addition to the area is a Handy Cross Sports Centre boasting swimming, 150 station gym, dance studio(s) and climbing wall, as well as a 12 court sports hall, bowls and squash courts. We are lucky to be surrounded by many parks, rivers and woodlands, often with the red kite (part of our school badge) flying high above.
You could enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside or just as easily hop on a train and be at Wembley Stadium, the West End or Oxford in less than an hour, and in between are the picturesque Thames-side towns of Marlow, Henley and Windsor.
Transport links are on your doorstep. The new Handy Cross HxH Regional Coachway provides connections to the local area as well as London, Oxford, airports and beyond. High Wycombe Train Station provides links to London (29 mins), Oxford (36 mins) or Birmingham (60 mins). Plus with four main national airports close by, internal or international flights are easy! Heathrow (25 mins) , Luton (40 mins), Stansted or Birmingham (60 mins) and Gatwick (90 mins).
We are also very close to the motorway network including M40, M4 and M25.
