Our belief in the moral purpose of the learning experience we provide is summed up by our school motto: ‘Not for our own advantage but for the common good’. We provide an extensive range of opportunities so that our students flourish as thoughtful, caring, confident and assured young adults ready to begin the next stage of their lives.

Our students are the leaders of the future; in the professions, the community and the country. Our provision ensures academic excellence, community involvement and unique opportunities for our students to further develop their leadership skills.

This website offers a flavour of the balance which we seek to achieve between hard work, personal responsibility and enjoyment. I hope that you will want to share in our success and become part of our vibrant school community. The most effective way of finding out what our school offers is to visit us and I very much look forward to meeting you.
