The ethos of Presentation Boarding School is one of care and respect for each individual boarder entrusted to its care. It endeavours to create an environment where the girls feel safe, relaxed and happy, and where they can benefit to the full from their secondary education. As well as good study opportunities, they are also given valuable training and encouragement to develop important life skills: such as the ability to live together in harmony; to be accepting and caring to one another; to learn the Christian values of kindness, forgiveness and generosity; and to deepen their faith life.
