There is quality pastoral care as well as a nurturing and positive learning environment, but it is the excellent community that makes the school so special and welcoming.

Our approach is to provide a well-rounded education for all students, focusing on both academic and non-academic areas. Learning opportunities are designed to give students more than just textbook knowledge, but also the tools to apply this knowledge in the real world. Critical thinking, interdisciplinary thinking, problem solving, and conflict resolution are all part of the “big picture” of a holistic education at Britannica.
