At Imberhorne, we pride ourselves on catering for students of all abilities and celebrating individual successes. Academic expectations are high and we ensure that each student’s talents are recognised so that they can achieve or exceed their full potential. To ensure the progress and attainment of all students, students are closely monitored so that appropriate guidance/mentoring is provided for those not achieving their potential.

As a community, we are committed to educating and inspiring students to be inquisitive, independent and confident learners; preparing them for successful futures.  Every encouragement is given to students to develop their thinking and pursue academic excellence through a wide variety of opportunities, such as:
