Frontrunners Sport values are about promoting responsibility, confidence, friendship and commitment. We believe that sport can be part of your personal and social development.
However, discussions, knowledge about organisation, event management and media are also an important part of the curriculum. We believe that physical and mental health is the best foundation when embracing strong living and a long life.
The focus is to discover and strengthen the unique skills of each student in a challenging, yet supportive social atmosphere. Students as well as teachers get to know each other and spend daytime, evenings and some weekends together in an atmosphere based on dialogue and mutual learning. On the sports field, in the classrooms and in the common rooms.
Together we create memories that will last a lifetime.
Come back and check our photos and videos as we continue to update them now and then. See if it is the right choice for you!
