School Successes

What does success mean for us? Our understanding of 'success' may be less traditional than the definition of other schools.

We are very proud of the excellent, measurable, results of our students in national and international rankings and competitions. We also know that academic results alone do not ensure a feeling of success and self-​fulfilment. We are delighted when students make considerable personal progress in the course of their studies at our school.
