Due to the increasing numbers in our school, we have long left the roles of just Principal & Deputy Principal behind. The Senior Management Team now consists of the Principal & three Deputy Principals with various responsibilities. They are supported by a group of Assistant Principals, who fulfil roles alongside their teaching positions, necessary to the running of our school.
