With the support of our financial and academic stakeholders, we have taken into consideration the current economic pressure on parents and are therefore pleased to announce that we have meaningfully adjusted the impact of our Secondary School tuition fees in order to make them more affordable, even while guaranteeing the quality of our programmes .
