At home in the world
One of the focal points of our educational approach centres on giving our students the tools they need to engage successfully with the global, intercultural world of the twenty-first century – a world that connects people across national borders and cultures and whose wellbeing depends on reciprocal communication and mutual understanding.
English is the most frequently used lingua franca for international communication in areas such as business, politics, science and academia. With this in mind, we incorporate English into our teaching from the very beginning, with one lesson a week from Year 1 of primary schooling. We teach specific curricular phases of some subjects in English and benefit from the support of subject teaching assistants whose first language is English.
