The Curriculum

Designed to be holistic and stimulating, it’s an unforgettable journey of discovery: science experiments, IT, field trips, drama, poetry, art, music, kayaking. We attract talented teachers who bring the joy of learning to the classroom. We systematically teach pupils to be intellectually curious and confident learners across all fields with our cutting-edge High Performance Learning framework.
