In a workshop at the beginning of the 2008 – 9 academic year the schools’ philosophy was expressed in the following terms. These are ideals and reflect the striving for betterment which underlies all effort in the schools and continue to be addressed and updated as necessary:

  • Our philosophy is to provide a whole person education which gives importance to the development of both the academic and social skills of pupils;
  • Our students are selected from a broad ability range and every student is important for us;
  • We push the capacities of children by adding as much value as possible to each child in our care;
  • We work together to realize our philosophy in an atmosphere of respect, clear standards, high expectations, and team work;
  • We are committed to the professional development of all our staff and to realizing their potential;
  • We lead by example.
