The Duchess's is a forward looking school.

We are ambitious for all of our students to be successful.

Put simply, we are striving for success for all!

We want the very best for our students so that they can experience the sort of opportunities that are important for them and relevant to their aspirations for the future – what ever those aspirations may be.

A recent visit by school inspectors recognised the caring ethos of the school and the commitment to helping students to succeed.

The Duchess's has traditionally had strong links with the local community and older generations of people. We believe in the value of education continuing beyond the age of sixteen and beyond the school gates! Over the next few years, the school will extend its involvement in the community so that we can play a part in making things better… for everyone.
