True education is not just about the acquisition of knowledge, it is learning how to apply that knowledge. So, while the main impetus of our work is on academic achievement we also emphasise the importance of co-curricular activities. These pursuits, which include music, debating, drama, literature, science and film, help to provide a context and relevance to the skills, facts and learning instilled in the classroom. For some, these pastimes remain life-time hobbies or interests, for others they provide the basis of a career.
