An excellent non-selective school with focus on both academics and sports and lots of attention paid to wellbeing of children. Teaching staff is very friendly and professional, pushing every child to perform at his/her best. Lots of ECA offered to cater for all tastes. Very competitive in sports and performing arts. Strong special needs support. British curriculum at its best. Happy kids.
