At Bishops we subscribe to the adage that ‘education is what remains with a person when he has forgotten everything he was taught’. We do indeed have a proud tradition of success in examinations; perhaps more importantly, boys find themselves able to cope when they go on to further study.

But while excellence can most easily be measured by results and qualifications, there is more to it than that: indeed, we believe that this kind of success is an inevitable by-product of good teaching – actually, of good education.
