The school is proud of its tradition, which extends over forty years. During this period we are proud of our former students’ successes in the sporting arena, in the Arts and in a range of vocational domains. Our students’ regular and continued success in external examinations, as well as within a host of extra curricular fields is testament to that excellent tradition.
