Life in school is busy and productive. Small classes with individualized learning pathways ensure the children make excellent academic progress and exceed targets in the core subjects.

Along with a stimulating curriculum, the captivating premises offer a state-of-the-art science lab, a versatile multi-purpose hall, and premium outdoor facilities. Pupils can engage in extracurricular activities, such as chess, fencing, debating, choir, drama, and gymnastics, all guided by hand-picked, expert teachers.

The Arts Programme is a rich one with all children having the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, perform in yearly shows, take piano, singing and drumming lessons and triumph in the Arts. Productions of Hamlet at the Arts Depot, the Addams Family at Jackson Lane Theatre and the Young Voices at the O2 Arena are established dates in the Arts calendar.

Football, cross-country, all year-round swimming, ballet, fencing and netball make up our sports programme. Utilizing our multi-purpose outdoor space allows for sports to be scheduled on-site, two indoor studios facilitate sports options as well.
