Our approach to learning
Knowledge versus skills? The debate goes on and on – but we believe that it isn’t a choice between one or the other. Our approach to learning both in Pre-Prep and Prep places the pupil at its core, is holistic and integrates the key areas of knowledge and understanding with thinking skills and learning characteristics.
In practice, this means we’re breaking down the boundaries between disciplines and that every school day contains a wealth of opportunities for independent learning and critical and creative thinking.
A traditional subject-by-subject curriculum does little to prepare for the interconnected world they’ll face, so our curriculum is designed to encourage them to explore and appreciate the links between different disciplines and topics or follow longer projects that pique their interest.
