Appear the Part

We ask all our students to work to be the best Scholar, Citizen and Ambassador they can be. In all of these first impressions count. We make this fact explicit to our students. All employers will judge your son and daughter when they meet them. We train our students to be an open-faced, confident citizen who will be eager to help.

Employers who come into our academy are asked to comment on the following check-list. You will, as a parent, want to support our academy in telling your son and daughter that this is how they need to be. Look through this list and check whether you think your son or daughter would pass this first impressions test.
