As as school we extremely grateful for the ongoing support from all areas of the local community. From business and charities to individuals we are always happy to work with outside bodies. We are also proud of the way our students participate in the community on a local, regional and international level and we welcome the opportuntiy to participate in a number of activities.
Below are some of the events the school has been involved in:
