The gardens of this school are of particular historic interest and have been recommended to us by the HGT Research Group. Although in largely 18th century English landscape style, there are areas of more ornamental Arts & Crafts design. The Italian terrace and sunken garden was designed by Harold Peto, who was also thought to be responsible for the Roman Arch and layout of the Glade. There is a colonnade by Thomas Mawson. Other features include a serpentine canal, three lakes, a climbable prospect mount, period former banana house and orangery, a fountain, rockery and a fascinating shell grotto. Our very knowledgeable guide will be David Hill, a long term member of the teaching staff.
