Based on the belief that a balanced, all-round education opens doors to a full and rewarding life, we aim to:
· Provide a sound academic foundation and to encourage each child to develop his potential to the full;
· Provide a choice of cultural and sporting activities to encourage recreation and the development of active minds in healthy bodies;
· Inculcate sound moral character based on Christian values, including traits like honesty, sincerity, empathy, compassion, tolerance, courage and faith.
· Promote the acquisition of life skills such as self-discipline, confidence, courtesy, and consideration within a co-educational, dual medium and multi-cultural environment where natural, healthy attitudes between boys and girls can evolve and where mutual understanding and respect between language and racial groups can develop.
· Provide an environment that encourages independent thinking, a positive attitude, an entrepreneurial outlook, clear decision-making and the development of communication, technical and practical skills.
Bearing in mind the underlying philosophy of the school - the education of the whole child - the pastoral area has been geared towards concern for the people of the school. It is based on the following specific objectives:
1. to care for the individual needs of staff and pupils;
2. to give general moral guidance to the school;
3. to control and discipline the school through effective leadership;
4. to involve parents, past pupils and friends of the school;
5. to reflect a positive image of the school to the public.

A boarding school provides education for pupils who live on the premises, as opposed to a day school. The word “boarding” is used in the sense of “room and board” i.e., lodging and meals. As they have existed for many centuries, and now extend across many countries, their function and ethos varies greatly.
Fewer Distractions. Boarding school students can focus better on their studies because television, video games, phones and other distractors are limited. These young scholars usually perform better academically because they live in an environment that is conducive to learning.
