We are a small, family owned school in which everyone feels at home and part of a family community. The small size of the school enables us to treat each student as an individual, with personalised support in their learning and beyond the classroom. Small means giving the students opportunities beyond the classroom.
Being in the city centre enhances significantly the opportunities we provide for students culturally, socially and in terms of leisure and learning opportunities.

Teaching approach of the school

We believe that the student is at the centre of all we do. Every child is different and our teachers use various teaching styles to engage the student and make the learning meaningful to each and every one. Small classes facilitate teacher contact and support. We want students to enjoy learning, to develop curiosity and a life long skills that prepare them for a rapidly changing world.
