Our Aim and Vision

We take great pride in providing a stimulating and rewarding place to work which enables all of our children to shine and achieve their dreams.

As Albert Einstein said everyone is a genius. If you judge a fish by their ability to climb a tree then they will believe they are stupid. We believe every child is unique with their own unique talents.

Children are our future. We have high expectations and encourage every child to aim high and achieve their dreams. 

We need to find their gifts, creativity and promote confidence in them. We must prepare them for the future not the past. Develop their ability to communicate and connect with each other. Enable them to be resilient and develop a growth mindset.

We aim to provide experiences that they can touch, feel and create. Allow them to see the consequences of their choices.  As educators, we are all true pioneers of change and we strive to be the best we can be.

No two brains are the same. One size does not fit all. We all have different needs, strengths and barriers to overcome. What we need to determine is how we reach our goal.

As teachers, we have the most important job on the planet. Yes, doctors carry out heart surgery but as teachers we can reach the heart of children and allow them to put their faith in us. We aim to bring the spirit out of each and every child, reach their inner core and encourage them to believe in themselves.

We develop ambitious and outstanding teachers who make a difference every day.  We develop a can-do learning environment where children are encouraged, as we are, to take risks to achieve their potential.

Achieving the best requires hard work, effort, drive and resilience. There are no short cuts.
