Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

We provide an open environment for children 3-15yrs. The curriculum and educational structure give children the freedom to develop to their fullest socially, intellectually and creatively. The ethos of the school is founded on a strong philosophy, the essence of which is the Montessori principle of respect for the well being of each individual, contributing towards a sustainable and healthy society.

Teaching approach of the school

Auburn House has a unique character, reflecting a balance of structure and order with a non-formal and open approach. This allows the energies of the growing child to be engaged freely, purposefully and naturally, while the teachers maintain the educational focus through a carefully-planned environment and innovative curriculum.
Our aim is to support to the best of our abilities each child’s developing independence – physically, intellectually and emotionally – and to nourish the spirit of each individual as they grow towards adulthood.
