 We believe that our students are happy, engaged and fulfilled in their school. Their participation and achievement in lessons is closely monitored, and teaching carefully structured to ensure all students are able to participate and achieve their potential. The students are encouraged to be independent, responsible and caring world citizens and these traits are supported by the diversity of over 30 nationalities represented in our international school community.
