The school has worked hard to build a positive reputation for the excellent educational opportunities it offers students, the exceptional support for staff development and professional growth and for its high standards of achievement. Staff and students are encouraged to achieve personal excellence in all aspects of their daily activities and to interact with each other and with the wider community in a positive, constructive and socially responsible manner.
