We have been spending much time planning and preparing so that we can enjoy and support you to make the most of the opportunities we want to provide for you.
There is much excitement about the development of our House structures into vertical tutor groups. Our goal is to ensure each young woman feels very connected to our school and society as she develops skills and attributes which aim to assist her to be a fine citizen in the 21st century.
