Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Our students learn how to learn. They discover the adrenaline rush of discovery. The joy of collaborative thinking. They are question-askers, deep-thinkers and optimistic solution-finders. They head off into life with a spirit of inquisitiveness. They aren’t fearful of challenges because they know how to research, experiment, uncover, decipher and solve. They are aware, empathetic and equipped to create change.
Academic themes / Areas of focus General - school does not emphasize one particular subject
