“HOLDING THE HAND THAT HOLDS THE FUTURE.”
Using technology wisely can open up a new world of learning.
Our senior students, aged 10 to 13 years old, are prepared for high schools of their choice. We encourage the application of skills through:
- Flexible thinking

Our students are encouraged to think independently, empowering them as they develop into young adults. Problem solving, critical and creative thinking, decision making and life skills are key components of the academic programme preparing children for the road ahead.
