We actively support the wellbeing of our teachers through a dedicated Wellbeing Team. We also aim to ensure that faculty members have the skills and knowledge to support the wellbeing of our students.

I have never worked in a school where the faculty was so excited about their own subjects. The teachers are interested and interesting. They have all got a story to tell. They pass on that excitement to the students.

~ Kingsley Wray, Mathematics Teacher


What I like about the school the most is the communication between teachers and students. It’s a friendly environment, and the teachers are very passionate about their subjects. It makes you want to learn.

~ Jan, Student, Year 11
