Our school motto 'Pride in Excellence' charts our course towards the pursuit of excellence. This is best achieved through students, parents, teachers and community working together to deliver the best educational opportunities.

Here learning is intellectually challenging, connected to the real world and individualised. This focus is founded upon the belief that learning is natural and that the love of learning is normal.
