Introduction

Our aims are to provide students with an enjoyable, challenging programme that meets the needs of the individual student, giving them the opportunity to develop their physical, social and emotional skills. The curriculum model offers a broad range of activities and places an emphasis on creativity and imagination. In addition, we continually encourage active participation, enabling students to develop their skills as a performer, coach, observer and official. The programme is further enhanced, through an extensive extracurricular programme designed for students to continue their development of skills in both competitive and non-competitive environments.
