Our aim is to ignite a lifelong passion for learning by:

  • establishing a rich, imaginative and relevant curriculum;
  • appreciating the impact we have as educators to enthuse, engage and enable; and
  • creating the right conditions for learning through effective and consistent approaches to behaviour.

Discover

Our aim is for our learners to discover and develop their potential through:

  • a carefully constructed curriculum that exposes them to a full range of subjects and experiences;
  • an exposure to powerful subject knowledge and a development of the skills associated with the dialectic (debate, authentic experiences, experimentation, enquiry, analysis, problem-solving) and the rhetoric (communication skills, performance, show-casing); and
  • learning about how they can manage their own behaviour by regulating, reflecting, relating, repairing and repeating.

Flourish

Our aim is that all our learners will flourish in our ever-changing world because they:

  • have had access to a varied and challenging curriculum that leads to successful outcomes in terms of character and capability;
  • are equipped with the skills, knowledge and curiosity that will encourage them to continue exploring; and
  • have developed positive emotional intelligence attributes that will contribute to successful professional and personal relationships during their life.
