Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

At Evolution, we are passionate about progressive education. The traditional classroom of the past is not fit for the needs of the 21st century. As society evolves there must be an evolution in education to prepare our children for the modern world. We want families to be our partners in learning, to take that journey with us in educating children so that they have the skills and confidence needed to make a significant contribution to society. After thirty years in education and experience in many different systems, we have come to realise that our young people have a huge capacity to learn if only we give them the skills and independence to realise their potential. We want students to experience the joy of learning and to have opportunities opened to them which were never available before.
We live in a time of rapid technological change and our education system must evolve to keep pace with this. This is why we created Evolution International School.

Teaching approach of the school

In Evolution, we believe students should have ownership towards their learning journey. Thus, we have adapted Phenomenon-Based-Learning approach where learning is interrelated and linked with authentic experiences.
