Students are the most important stakeholders in our school as it is their future success that drives what we do. We aim to harness the energy, passion and ideas of each student for them to fully reach their potential. We recognise that their potential will be enhanced by giving learners opportunities to take the lead in areas of the core business of the school. To create successful people we recognise that students must be given opportunities to grow in maturity through experiencing democracy in action, decision making and ultimately becoming responsible citizens.
Our students possess incredible inner resources and human capital that we must unlock. Far from being vessels waiting to be filled, they have endless potential for contributing to a rich, diverse school environment. We are dedicated to establishing a culture of student leadership as both a means of personal and institutional growth for students and the school.
