We understand the diverse needs of family life and aim to establish a mutual trust and understanding between family and home.  In addition to the school curriculum, we offer a range of extra-curricular activities throughout the academic year to further encourage and support the children’s curiosity, creativity and passion to complement what they learn during the school day.
