Our Vision


The splendid, old and beautiful Bishop’s Palace makes a great focus for much of the life of our school. It is the sort of place that our pupils will remember for the rest of their lives, as do the Alumni, and is all the more interesting because of its age.

Our vision is to re-invigorate the physical presence of SCS to ensure we can continue to provide exceptional education for pupils now and in the future. The old and beautiful Bishops Palace will, of course, remain firmly at the heart of our school but we plan to modernise surrounding classrooms and facilities to meet the needs of a forward thinking independent preparatory school.

Our plans, detailed below, include significant expansion and modernisation of our Science laboratories and Information Technology facilities. We plan to greatly improve the learning spaces provided for Drama, Art and Design & Technology. Sporting facilities will also be enhanced with the provision of new changing rooms as well as a new multi-use Sports and Performance Hall. In addition, a new Pavilion will be built to improve match viewing, and of course match teas, as well as serving to support the continued expansion of our outdoor learning provision for all pupils.
