Welcome to our Secondary Department. We anticipate an exciting year, yet again!
Our Secondary staff not only seek to educate our students so that they can achieve academically (and aim for their dreams), but are also committed to supporting students to make, social, emotional and behavioural progress. It’s not all work and no play, however!
We have lots of exciting things planned, including assemblies, trips, football matches, plays and celebrations.The staff are excited about a new academic year and a fresh start for students.
