We believe in a fresh approach, openness of enquiry, breadth as well as depth of study, creativity in argument and invention, independence of mind, and ambition for real quality. Intellectual and cultural diversity develops our pupils’ sense of responsibility towards the wider community. One of our central approaches to education is to make learning real, so that it moves out of the confines of books and teaching aids and becomes relevant and interesting in the child’s real world. This is approached by starting from what they already know, and slowly guiding them towards their desired learning level.
We offer a dynamic environment where each student is challenged and encouraged to become a critical and compassionate thinker, a contributing member of the local and global community, showing respect and understanding for other cultures and acknowledging that others can be different and also right. The school pledges not to make its children apprehensive of their limitations. Instead we encourage them to discover their own potential and develop it.
How do we do teaching?
Our methodology is based on the belief that children build to ‘construct’ their knowledge of the world. This means that learning is not just a process of adults giving information to children; rather children become active learners- discovering things through direct experiences with people, objects, events and ideas.
