Our Aims as a School

We aim

  • To offer academic excellence within excellent facilities,
  • To place an emphasis on the whole child,
  • To develop a purposeful attitude, self-confidence and a respect for others; developing trust, truth and a strong sense of community,
  • To develop a love of learning, which is fostered from within,
  • To offer a well balanced, all round education which will result in the pupils themselves being well balanced, well attuned, and well in mind and body,
  • To ensure that children are happy in themselves, happy in each other’s company, confident in their ability.

How we will achieve our aims

  • Plan and devise our curriculum from first principles, always focusing on the whole child
  • Appoint staff who will be very keen and able to uphold and promote the aims of the school
  • Maintain class and group sizes small enough for tuition in lessons to be highly student focussed, encouraging outstanding individual achievement
  • Give emphasis to pastoral care within the school day, both in terms of contact time and staffing, to deliver a highly personalised education, and a quality of pastoral care rarely seen in day schools
  • Promote a reflective culture among the teaching staff, with a commitment to learning and professional development, so that the highest teaching standards are achieved and maintained
  • Promote a unique home-school partnership built on trust, mutual respect, and excellent communication
  • Use London’s nearby galleries, museums, and other iconic landmarks as an extended classroom for the school, to promote culture and all-round education
  • Use the hundreds of surrounding acres afforded by the Royal Parks, the Thames, and fully equipped sporting facilities nearby and further afield, to promote physical exercise, health, team spirit, and a sense of belonging in the capital
