Vision and Ethos
" I want to provide our children with the richest possible educational experience to give them the opportunity to become some of the most successful students in the world."
We strive to develop students who value Intellect, Empathy and Courage.
Our vision is of a school that gives students the confidence to succeed in whatever they aspire to do in their lives. We want all students to reach their full academic potential in line with the Learner Profile of the IB and with our ethos, expressed in the three words: Intellect, Empathy and Courage.
Students are excited by the world around them and curious to know more. They engage critically with information and grapple intellectually with global and more personal issues.
Students appreciate and value other people and acquire the skills needed to communicate ideas and information. They understand and appreciate their own culture and are open to the values and traditions of others. They act to make a positive difference to the lives of others.
Students are open to new situations and experiences and have the independence of spirit to explore new ideas. They act with integrity and honesty and take responsibility for their own actions. They give thoughtful consideration to their own strengths and limitations and act to support their own development.
Picture our Ethos...
...in terms of a sports team or a music band or the cast and crew of a play:
Intellect - learning to play, developing the skills, tactical knowledge
Empathy - working together, sensitive to the team around you
Courage - to practise, to persevere, to perform - resilience
