We are signatories to the ‘Code of Practice of International Students’. International programmes exist in the school involving students attending from a wide variety of countries, within Europe, North and South America and Asia. We have links with many recognised exchange programmes as well as with organisations in Japan.


The school has a history of both hosting and sending exchange students. A trip to Japan occurs every two years; the last trip was in October 2018. An Arts and Culture trip to Europe – Greece, Italy, France and Spain is a tri-annual excursion.  


English as a second language is provided when required in preparation for internationally recognised examinations such as IELTS.
