The pupils living in the surrounding areas usually come to school by bike or on foot.
Our school, founded in 1961, offers a wide spectrum of education areas working to academic, technical and vocational qualifications. Pupils are also given the opportunity to be involved in (international) extracurricular activities such as sports competitions (Uppingham, Salesian games), STEM projects and an exchange project with an Indian sister school in Pondicherry.

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that support the International Space Station (ISS). In the United States, sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation(AMSAT), the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the ISS National, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students. Before and during these radio contacts, students, educators, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, and amateur radio. For more information, see www.ariss.org.
