“More than any other school I have been to or have heard about, it is a community. Everyone is supportive of one another and it is a school based on strong morals that uphold the school to be one of trust, respect and equality where everyone feels welcomed."

“When I joined the school everyone was incredibly supportive when I needed help with anything. This is something that I didn’t experience as much at my previous school, and is one of the reasons why I enjoy my time as LP so much."
