As one of the oldest independent schools in England, the royal family has visited several times. The Duke of York opened the Jubilee Building (years 3 to 8) in 2003, and the Windsor Building (pre-prep) in 2006. Since then the school has opened several other new facilities, including a Design Technology Centre, floodlit all-weather pitch and Performing Arts Studio. A new indoor swimming pool opened in November 2013.
