Curriculum OpportunitiesWe pride ourselves on a wide range of curriculum opportunites for our students
It’s not the curriculum that we offer that sets us apart, it’s the manner in which it’s delivered.
Any school can teach a curriculum. Amazing schools like ours are full of teachers actively and passionately exploring the possibilities of making their teaching practice more innovative, engaging and fun at every turn. This is the single ingredient that drives the most growth in our students.
The success we attain is not only evidenced by the assessment data – but it’s seen through the smiles and joy we see on our student’s faces as a concept is grasped. This is the indefinable element that drives us as teachers to produce and grow our own teaching skills year in, year out.
