It is therefore vitally important that every learner and parent ACCEPT the Code of Conduct which will govern the behaviour of each learner at the school.
The purpose of the Code of Conduct is therefore to establish a disciplined, safe and purposeful school environment, dedicated to the improvement and maintenance of the quality of the learning process.
Our Code of Conduct has two levels of offences :
First Level Offences : The Interval and Friday defaulters’ Class is recommended.
Second Level Offences : Suspension or expulsion is recommended.

3. Remember the long-term aim :
Parents face two options. We can keep using the same patterns we used when they were young (and frustrate ourselves to death), or we can realise that our methods must change as our teenagers develop. As hard as it is, our role must move from controller to consultant. What do consultants do? They ask questions, offer opinions, share experiences, present options, and forecast outcomes. Ultimately however, they step back and allow the client to make decisions. Consultants understand what they can and cannot do for their client, and as a result the client owns the process as well as the results.
