We are a relatively small school, under 400 students. Approximately 20% of students board, with half of the boarders living on the Island and the rest from a wide variety of countries around the world. We are non-selective, but through the dedication of our staff, the structure of support for each individual and the work ethic of our students, we achieve excellent results. Our students go to top universities in the UK, Europe and the USA.
The Isle of Man is a beautiful environment in which to live. It is a safe haven with a very low crime rate, giving students the freedom to explore and take advantage of the fresh air, open countryside and beaches, away from the hustle and bustle and pollution of a busy city. The Island is easy to get to with air links from the major airports in the UK and Ireland.
We are one of a few schools where every student in the Sixth Form studies for the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The IB philosophy - particularly its emphasis on skills and its focus on internationalism - is central to our approach and we are one of the largest and most experienced IB schools in the British Isles.
Our pupils follow a broad curriculum of sporting activities, competing in the major sports against UK and Island schools. Every three years, the senior rugby and hockey teams embark on a world sports tour during the summer months. Golf, rock climbing and sailing are also on offer, along with a wide variety of other extracurricular activities.
Drama and Music thrive and pupils are given the opportunity to perform at many events and productions. There are workshops throughout the year and students are also encouraged to participate in competitions.
