Welcome Back

Dear All,

A huge welcome back to all of you. There is a lovely atmosphere in the school this morning as well as much anticipation and the standard nervous tension from students, parents and teachers alike.

This is an exciting time in the history of the school, with much work being carried out over the summer that has included:

A New Admin Building;

6 New Classrooms;

A New Infant ICT Lab;

Extension to Year 1 Playground;

A New Astro Turf.

There have been many more improvements completed and the Astro Turf will be opened shortly as the work is almost complete. There will also be a coffee shop built as we go into the cooler season.

It is also an exciting time as we look forward to the Irtiqa’a inspection this term too. This will occur around the end of November, although the date has not been announced or finalised yet. We are confident that the work we have done over the last two years, and the input we have had from lead inspectors working with the school, will see the school grade rise, especially after seeing some fantastic iGCSE and A Level results this summer as well as last year.

I wish you and you families a great first day into this 2017 new academic year, and I look forward to celebrating continued successes with you in the very near future.

Yours sincerely


Andrew Thomas B.Ed (Hons) M.Phil NPQH
