The School by the beach
We are constantly striving to ensure the best possible teaching and learning environment which integrates educational philosophy and practice.
In addition to our spectacular beachfront location which enables us to make extensive use of our ‘Classroom on the Beach’, our campus has many exciting features designed to enhance our teaching and learning activities at each age and stage of development and create a beautiful, practical and welcoming environment for our students.
