By the early 1990s the principle of full co-education had been embraced and many more female staff were appointed, including the first female Deputy Head Caroline Thompson. By September 1995 there were girls in every year of the school.

The school’s academic success continued and, under Headmaster Timothy Hands, the standards of pastoral care and extra-curricular activities were developed. 

The David Russell Theatre was completed in 1990, the Fawcett Pavilion was opened at Hilsea in 1992 and a Sixth Form Centre was built in 1995.
