Each year the Senior Leadership Team (Principal and Deputy Principals) and Board of Trustees agree on specific strategic goals or 'major projects' for the year.
These are significant projects affecting the whole school and will have a long-term benefit to the college, its students and the wider community. They sit within the Board of Trustee's long-term 2019 - 2023 strategic plan.
