Success in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years, Career-related, and the renowned Diploma Programme has ensured our graduates leave us to attend the university of their choice anywhere in the world.

Their academic education is enriched by cultural diversity, small class sizes, outstanding facilities, and a campus that is naturally beautiful, open and green. Our students – actively involved in the local and global community, service work, and field trips – develop team and leadership skills that serve them well, both in and outside of school.

Students and staff have a genuine drive for excellence. We prize holistic education, internationalism and communication. Our students think globally, and as young leaders possess a concern and responsibility towards the future of our planet. We believe every student will be able to achieve more than they believe they can.

You will find our door is always open, and we invite you to visit and see our educational experience in action.
