Engaging teachers are at the very heart of our school. They embrace and nurture the creativity, open hearts and natural curiosity of young people - through exploration, imagination and investigation.

Our teachers know how important it is to connect with children, to involve them and understand their individual needs. When students are engaged at their level and having fun, they will learn.

Our professional teachers are of the highest calibre and embrace teaching practices that are well-researched and known to make a difference. They are supported by a fantastic team of education assistants.

Use kind words, always. School is a place of learning - it is a journey of learning -it is ok to make mistakes so we can learn from them. Be involved in lots of activities as you never know who you might meet and what friendships you might develop.
