The report added: “The unswerving commitment of the school leadership team for the improvement of the school’s distinctive Christian character has been at the heart of the school’s success.”

The ‘strong impact’ of the school’s partnership with the school in Melanesia was also recognised.

In the report it also said: “Distinctive Christian values, known as the school’s HEART values, have a strong impact on the children’s academic achievement, personal development and well being.”
