This Secondary School prides itself on an excellent all-round education that its students leave with, many of whom go on to higher education and skilled vocational employment. They have strong relationships with the local community and parents/carers of the student body. Their collegiate feel is evident in everything they do and this harbours great relationships with local business and stakeholders who support the school.

The School has as a mission statement 'Opportunities through learning'. They believe that this means that every child who enters the School from year 7 through to year 13, should have:
