We feel this balance is something that underpins everything we are trying to achieve. We are committed to providing a curriculum that will:

  • Meet individual needs and aspirations
  • Be broad, challenging and motivating
  • Offer participation in learning to 19 years of age
  • Prepare students for a positive role in the future
