To become the best that they can be by having pride in reaching their potential via a varied, exciting programme of study suitable to the needs of all students, but also via a personal and social programme that teaches students their rights and responsibilities towards others, but also towards their immediate environment – students can become behaviour monitors, council representatives for example which empowers them, allowing them the opportunity to strive for leadership roles and to assist others to aspire to be like them thus contributing positively to the local school community as well as the national and global society.

To be proud of one’s school, of one’s community, of one’s environment and to encourage honesty and integrity in every aspect of school life. To embrace this culture of integrity so that one’sreputation grows and matures into responsible, caring people that are prepared to become part of a global society. Through team work, we encourage them to respect one another and contribute positively within groups.
