The school has a large outdoor area which includes a transport playground, multifunctional sports ground, an outdoor classroom and many trees. The area is used for P.E, After-School activites as well as outdoor lessons. The school is situated close to two forests which are also used for outdoor learning.
The school plays an active role in the Community being involved in various projects to support charities for example White Pastel and League Against Cancer as well as being involved in Anti-Bullying projects. Our school also supports the environment through various projects e.g Blue School (Water Project) and Green School. The school places an emphasis on languages and encouraging the students to know what life is like outside Slovakia so we are involved in Phenomenal World Project, Erasmus, as well as having connections with the U.K.
