A Community of Dynamic, Confident and Caring Learners
To nurture agile minds and build character through holistic education
School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos
We aim to seed the skills and dispositions of confident learners and develop caring individuals with a heart for the society. We pride ourselves on providing a holistic education that develops our students into respectful, responsible and resilient individuals. The school adopts a whole-school approach towards student development with ‘every educator, a character builder and a discipline teacher’. Our staff subscribes to the guiding principle of ‘High Expectations, High Care’ to shape the daily interactions between teachers and students. Our literacy and numeracy programmes strengthen the foundations of our weaker students and stretch the more able ones. We are also committed to staff professional development to ensure that our staff members are competent in helping students experience success in both the academic and non-academic domains. There is a strong and pervasive ethos of care and our students feel that the school is a safe environment for learning and growth.
