Our curriculum is deep rooted in a philosophy for education that allows all of our children to have the opportunity to access and engage in lessons that are creative, innovative with interconnectivity across subjects.  Our intention is to enable our children to reach high levels of academic and artistic achievement.


Subjects are taught in the context of a purposeful and meaningful topic that inspires, excites and enthuses learners, offering them transferrable skills for life-long learning. The progressive curriculum builds upon prior knowledge, challenges thinking and enables a higher level of understanding for long term memory acquisition, storage and retention.
