Great for sports, ok for academics, bad for arts

Amazing school if you’re into sports, especially rugby. Academics are adequate but it really falls short when it comes to its art department. Drama class is frequently canceled and not available to students due to low numbers and they don’t remedy this you simply have to choose another subject. Would like to see a bit more of the budget go towards arts and academics. However, the staff, teachers and leadership team are all great and genuinely care about student experiences

It’s a all rounder

School is very enjoyable if you play sports like rugby and do subjects like maths, however I believe some teachers are very demanding at times. The senior staff are ok but not the best atm and there’s plenty of different people to surround yourself with

Not great

The school is pretty old and out of date and most of the teachers are pretty bad.
