We have been described as a ‘small school with a big heart'. We are committed to providing a vibrant and enriching educational environment for students to flourish. Our school creates safe, challenging and exciting learning within modern flexible spaces and also maximizes a range of opportunities outside of the classroom. Our highly skilled teachers ensure an education that is transformational, developing caring and curious global citizens who make a positive difference to the world. We help our students become confident, independent and resilient learners who are empowered to achieve their best in all aspects of life. We strongly believe that all children can be successful. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School we offer a significant, engaging and high quality international education for our students. Using the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) as a framework, students learn through an inquiry approach where they are encouraged to explore concepts and ideas that are meaningful and relevant to their lives. We embrace the diversity of cultures within our internationally minded community, and our students aim to make a positive difference.
