Our Community

We are proud to be part of a broader community and where there are opportunities to educate our students beyond the classroom and within the community, we build the pathways. Such opportunities beyond the classroom provide our students with the rich and broad curriculum we know is essential. 

We provide a range of opportunities for our student community through our extensive enrichment programmes, as well as bringing the local community together through shared activities, long term projects and access to our excellent facilities.

"Leaders have improved the school’s educational provision and, along with staff, have strengthened the school’s standing in the community."
