What says..

Many parents have Mediterranean roots (Turkish, Spanish, Greek, Italian, Cypriot) and a firm belief in family, and the school reflects those values. Very much a traditional prep, it retains distinctive black and yellow blazers, formal good manners and neatly brushed hair. Rugby has put the school back on the prep school circuit, and more recently too has tennis.
