The College is
rich in extra-curricular activities. The main games are rugby, cricket and
cross country, but there are many others. Drama is strong with a major
production each year as well as other events. Boys are actively involved in the
liturgical life of the school. Music,

in Chester, Norwich, Worcester and York Minster.
There are approximately 950
boys on the school roll, including over 200 in the Sixth Form. Most proceed to

information contained on our website; however I would urge you to visit us on our open days, to
experience the college for yourself.
