Our vision is to foster a progressive learning environment that helps all our students graduate as mature, confident young people, who have the know-how and drive to achieve success in their chosen fields.

Students enjoy being part of a school community where there is opportunity for each of them to be known and cherished. They also enjoy modern facilities, an attractive environment, and ease of access in the heart of Henderson. Our emphasis on positive, happy students is supported by school rules and guidance systems that ensure a safe environment.

Our wider community of staff, students, families and alumni share pride and confidence in our school as a place of high standards, and excellent achievement. Our success depends on teaching and learning programmes that can be tailored to academic ability, and create enhanced engagement with the use of the latest technologies.

To develop social skills and character, there are wide-ranging opportunities for students in sports, music and the arts.

Please contact us to arrange a visit, or for further information.
