Academic Excellence

Our school mission is to provide an education that cultivates courteous, independent and creative thinkers.

 

We allow our students' passionate interests to be unlocked and explored alongside excelling academically, practically, emotionally and socially in a purposeful school environment.

 

Our independence allows us to have a direct focal point on the individual, be responsive to change and provide a broad, innovative educational journey for our pupils.

 

Small class sizes allow more focus from the teacher to student, more opportunities to take part and express their opinions, more tailored technical training and enable students to be more educationally engaged and stimulated.

 

Embedding Professional Performing Arts training into the curriculum allows students to balance their academic and Performing Arts studies in an environment that understands the desire to succeed in both.
