Better than average teaching, worse than expected culture. For a school so insistent on "brotherhood", there is always an ingroup and an obvious outgroup, which is almost exclusively made up of vulnerable people, including LGBTQ+ students and those with physical or mental disabilities. The teachers are pleasant people and honestly, most of the boys are too, but if you end up on the wrong side of that fence, they are ruthless in their bullying.

This behaviour lessens with age, with it being nearly nonexistent at Year 13, but still present in whispers behind backs. If you put in the work, this school will take you far, but the attitudes at all ages are very juvenile and you must be prepared to face physical or emotional bullying, because no one is really safe.

Counselling exists at the school, which is good, but only serves to combat the symptoms of a deeper problem within the school. Of course, if you are inside the ingroup, you will face no trouble.

The boys will help

It is very great for learning and the boys there all help and respect each other and the teachers there are all very nice and friendly to the family and the boys. The college community is great and it helps out with stuff.
