Our School

Our mission statement:

We will provide our students with an academic education which will enable them to become life-long, successful learners, and which will prepare them for the challenges of an ever-changing world with confidence, compassion and integrity, and in partnership with parents and the community.  We will provide an environment in which each student recognises and respects the values of our crest; excellence, service and strength.

International feepaying students are warmly welcomed into our school community. Our experienced International Team and English Language Learning teaching staff are committed to the care and well-being of this special group of young men, and to ensuring that each international student has the opportunity and support to realise their academic and co-curricular aspirations.
