"

The pupils are spoilt for choice. There are not enough hours in the day for my son to do all the extra-curricular activities that he would like to be involved in. The training and discipline my son has received in sport has been outstanding. His physical fitness has reached new heights. The support of the teachers/coaches is unrivalled.
