"I will never forget the school that was well worth travelling 5000 miles for."

Academic excellence lies at our heart. Our highly qualified and enthusiastic staff, combined with small class sizes, ensure all pupils are given the individual support they need to succeed.

The boarding community represents around 25% of the student population. Our boarders come from all over the world and they foster friendships which will last a lifetime. The pupils follow a broad curriculum of sporting activities, competing in the major sports against other Isle of Man and UK schools. We also have our own Golf Academy and rock climbing and sailing are on offer, in addition to a wide variety of extra-curricular activities.

Drama and Music thrive at College. The pupils are given the opportunity to perform at many Music and Drama evenings and school productions and sing in our Chapel choir

With pupils from over 20 nationalities we are proud of our internationalism. 12% of our students are non-UK nationals and our overseas students are fully integrated and our non-English speakers are supported with qualified EFL staff.

We are easy to get to with regular flights from most UK airports. There is no transfer issue - the airport is next door!
