At our coeducational, two-year school catering for 540 local and international students aged 11-13 years, we strive to provide an engaging and future-focused education for every child.
Our school is strongly based on valuing diversity, integrity, creativity and excellence. We want every student to thrive and be the best they can be in an environment with a real emphasis on supportive, caring, and encouraging relationships. A place for every young person to be the best possible version of themselves. 
Our outstanding team of highly qualified and skilled teachers are specialists in developing young people as they negotiate the challenges and opportunities of early adolescence.  They share a common commitment to academic excellence and a focus on the well-being of every child. 
A noted strength of our school is the wide range of opportunities for every student, including the visual and performing arts, sports, leadership, and clubs that seek to engage the student both within and beyond the classroom.
We welcome enquiries from prospective families and also from international students as we believe our school community benefits from learning and developing alongside students from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds.
