The fabulous Endless turf multi-sport project was completed in early 2019. This gives the students a much greater selection of sports to play on a single specialised multi-sport surface all year round.

The advantages of this surface are numerous:
The school now has the perfect space for physical education classes and school sports days. All year round.
