Aims and Ideals
We aim to provide a firm foundation in the fundamental skills necessary to pursue further education and to stimulate growth in all areas of the child's development. We believe that school should be a happy experience so we provide a loving, supportive environment in which the children are free to explore, to express themselves and to learn many valuable lessons in addition to the purely academic ones.
We recognise that each child is gifted with something special, something unique. We aim to encourage this uniqueness, to identify each child's special qualities and talents and to develop them as fully as possible. Therefore classes are kept small (average 15) and are divided into small groups according to individual academic levels, enabling the teachers to draw out the full potential of each child.
While the children are acquiring the necessary skills, through a carefully structured and balanced curriculum, we encourage a spirit of enquiry and self-reliance and a love of learning in order to stimulate a life-long thirst for knowledge. In this way, we aim to develop children who are independent learners and are confident in their own ability.
When our children leave us we hope they will take with them not only the highest level of academic, artistic and creative achievements of which they have proved individually capable, but also standards of truth, honesty and respect for the rights and needs of others which will help them live full, useful and happy lives.
