How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

The Board of the school have deliberately kept it as a 'family size' school.

Although smaller than some of its competitors it has a wide range of facilities including an indoor swimming pool, children's splash pool, 230 seat theater, gymnasium and all-weather pitch.

A wide range of extra-curricular activities are available including some provided by outside coaches and organisations.

Teachers have experience of accommodating the needs of children new to school (and international life). The curriculum employed uses teaching methods designed to support and challenge all children e.g. through differentiation.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There are a number of parent groups that support the school. Throughout the year many different events take place which children and parents from the school (and beyond) attend

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Go along and check it out for yourself to see if it suits your child's needs. My boy goes there and I've been very happy with his time in Year 6.
