From the head teacher
"In some ways I have the easiest job in the world. Each day, I am amazed at the achievements of our students who have found they are capable of much more than they first thought possible. We have an active and engaged parent community which enriches the life of the school for everyone’s benefit."
Mr Darren Gale, Principal
Quotes from the parents
"I always knew that there was a lot going on in the school, but I had no idea of the breadth of activities until I read this newsletter. The school should be proud of its pupils and the range of opportunities it makes available to them. Well done."
