  • Children take part in brainstorming and planning what they learn each term. We keep our curriculum dynamic to remain relevant and ensure our young learners are invested in what we introduce in class.

  • Children are encouraged to write and record evidence to show their respective learning and understanding of the topics introduced in class.

  • Our environment encourages creativity, problem solving and thinking ‘outside the box.’

  • Group projects enhance peer learning and encourage a community spirit amongst students to become global learners.

  • Our LEAD values system continues to develop leadership skills and gives each child an opportunity to shine. This gives them the confidence to take on new challenges with a positive outlook and builds emotional maturity and resilience.

  • We keep the children connected through an interactive whiteboard and have access to various digital platforms that extend learning.
