The About the School and History sections of the site use Javascript to help present the large amount of information in the best way possible. If your Browser does not support Javascript or if you have disabled it for any reason a non javascript version of the information will be displayed. This version presents the data as one long list instead of presenting it as a sub section at a time.


The site is designed so that when you print a page, only the important information is printed. The header picture, navigation and Quicklinks are not printed for example.

On the "History" page, all sections are printed no matter which sub section you are viewing. If you only want to print a single subsection you will need to select the text and copy and paste it into your Word Processor and print it from there.

Accessibility statement

Access keys

Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key. Note that in Internet Explorer using an Access Key only gives focus to the element. You then need to press Enter to execute it. There are many issues with this feature Jukka Korpela explains most of them.

Standards compliance

This site complies with the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, in most areas. On the Photo Gallery page however there are some non compliances due to the use of an Open Source package to display the images which is not compliant. Efforts are being made to bring this area up to standard.


  1. Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
  2. Whenever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.
  3. There are no "javascript:" pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, even if scripting is turned off.
  4. There are no links that open new windows without warning.


  1. All content images include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.

Visual design

This site and all its archives use cascading style sheets for visual layout.

  1. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable, although the School Calendar is quite hard to read. We are working on this!
