The School prides itself on poviding a safe and happy environment where students can learn, play and reach their full potential. The highly skilled staff present a balanced and relevant curriculum suitable to the child’s needs and do so by employing approaches and methodologies that tap into the child’s sense of wonder and natural curiosity.

Pupils are constantly encouraged and affirmed and the dignity and uniqueness of each child is given a high priority.
