What is a MET student?
“A young person who is driven to make the most of the academic, social and individual opportunities available to them – in and out to school; to be curious and a lifelong learner becoming a valuable leading member of the local and national community. Ultimately to have mastery of their thinking, behaviour and ambitions to lead a fulfilling life”.
