A loving, patient, calm, tolerant and industrious atmosphere is immediately evident on entering the Primary Department

In Fifth Form, students sit the Cambridge Assessment International Education IGCSE examinations in Science, Business and Humanities subjects. Cambridge IGCSE examinations develop application of knowledge rather than mere recall of facts.
