Our School

Our People

The wellbeing of our staff and students is at the centre of everything we do. Our educators help all students experience success and feel valued. By building off their interests and applying real-world contexts to their learning, our students are engaged and challenged. We place a large emphasis on continual professional development to ensure that we are at the cutting edge of education and provide the best programmes for intermediate-aged learners. 

  • Specialists in emerging adolescence
  • Student centred teaching
  • We use a variety of approaches, materials and resources which acknowledge the diversity of learning needs at this age.
  • Engaging, challenging and empowering young learners
  • Actively and explicitly teach students to use specific tools to assist with their learning
