Visions and value
The school aims to help students become better – to become lifelong learners, with their interactions with others and to teach them to be global citizens. It strives to provide a broad and stimulating curriculum and environment for its students and to instil a sense of racial and cultural harmony throughout the school. The main values the school promotes are independence without selfishness, inner strength with compassion and a tolerant, open-minded attitude.
The curriculum is based on the British National Curriculum. In Key Stage One, a holistic educational programme is used to teach the pupils. After that the core subjects of literacy, maths and science are emphasised alongside music, art, P.E. and computing. Extra-curriculars include music and art. English is taught as an additional language and is registered with CIE and AQA, two English examination boards.
The school prides itself on hiring professional, high quality, English-speaking teachers who are just as enthusiastic about teaching as they are about learning and growing in their roles.
