You’d be shocked about this school once you visit it... Most people have an idea of it, that isn’t so positive, but once you visit it, they totally change your mind... Lovely school, very friendly and welcoming team, great teachers and all in all positive energy! The only issue with it, is being in a high security area, which makes it harder to visit, which could be positive to some and negative to others, but other than that; it sure seems like a great school!
