The answer is partly that we are run on a not-for-profit basis, which means that we can charge a great deal less than many independent, profit-making schools in London. Also because we spend money only on the things that are essential to our children's education.
It has been said that we are about no-frills education. This is not accurate. In fact, we have a significant amount of breadth in what we provide. We place great emphasis on Numeracy, Literacy and traditional academic subjects, but Sport, Music, Drama and Art are also of great importance to us.
This website gives a lot more detail about the education we offer, our history, vision and values. We would also encourage you to visit our individual school websites to gain further insight. We hope you will be inspired by our schools and we would be happy to show you around if you would like to learn more about what we do.
