Innovation has long been core to our ethos. We wholeheartedly believe in the power of creativity to empower our students and drive success both in and outside the classroom, in line with our 2022 vision to deliver a holistic learning experience. We urge all our students to make the most of our program this month by challenging themselves to take their creativity to new heights.”
