Twin schools combining the best features of single-sex and co-education for children aged two and a half to thirteen

Forms 1W, 1NP and 2JFM and 2MT learn French in the footsteps of the D-Day veterans

All the Year 7 clases, Forms 1W, 1NP and 2MT and 2JFM took to the sea aboard the Brittany Ferries ship Mont St Michelle on almost the eve of anniversary of D-Day .

Staying in a hotel just yards from Gold Beach, where 42 landing craft from 47 Royal Marine Commando landed 420 men, the Brockhurst and Marlston party studied French by practising in a local market, by visiting a local school and gained a feel for the stormy condition along this coast by visiting Gold Beach on an afternoon of ferocious wind and rain.
