Environment appeared to be fairly strict and formal within lessons but less so during form time etc. Form tutors seemed to be less formal during these times. There is an expectation that the rules will be obeyed.
There is always a certain amount of 'bullying' at every school but they seemed to deal with it well.
Hopefully some current parents can let you know more
