It goes without saying that our school looks amazing but we think that the function that our common areas provide is even more impressive, all of which are designed to encourage social interaction and performance. The open and airy halls and foyer are scattered with couches and small nooks to allow for students to assembly for an impromptu lunchtime performance or to have a quiet supporting word with a teacher or friend. Terraced areas allow for assemblies and instruction. These are all flexible, multi purpose spaces that are used by staff and students alike. Outside, when the weather permits, we have designated teaching areas to allow is to soak up the sun along with some knowledge.

Our school is filled with modern light, and grand, open views that take full advantage of our unique position hugging the shore of the Irish Sea. The connection to the sea and our location is one of the central elements in our school's identity and is also reflected in our school's crest.
