We cater for students who want to achieve their academic potential and progress to further education. Our success is based on hard work and commitment. We will only ask students to reflect on theirattitude and effort. You have the support necessary through our careers program, revision courses and supervised study. You will have access to a wide range of subjects without restricting your choices. This means you choose the subjects based on your strengths, not the school's choice.
In keeping with this philosophy we welcome boys of all abilities. We work hard to facilitate the transition from primary school to secondary level education for all our pupils. John Baptist de laSalle believed that, in the person of the Lasallian teacher and within the Lasallian community of the school, a remedy was to be found for many of the ills of society. The need for such a remedy is just as evident today.
