Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

You want the best for you child. So do we.

Teaching approach of the school

The happiness and contentment of our students is of utmost importance to us: the exceptional academic success that we have achieved here comes about through rigour, hard work and discipline, but also through a very strong pastoral element that accompanies the emotional development of our students.

This is absolutely vital and it is why we purposefully nurture a working environment that means students work hard, work well, but also take risks and try new ideas in their learning processes. Indeed, students must BE AMBITIOUS as GLOBAL CITIZENS LEARNING TOGETHER.
