Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Lomas Hill supports and cultivates a positive relationship between the students, the teachers and parents based on mutual respect. These relationships are the heart of the community, allowing students from diverse backgrounds to bring their personal ideas, cultures and experiences into the classroom and onto the campus.
We are committed to provide each child with personalized attention, ensuring they receive the academic, social and emotional support they need to be successful. As well as delivering social and emotional learning classes throughout the school, our psychopedagogy team meets with each child’s teachers at least five times per year to discuss their progress and identify the best ways to support their learning.

Teaching approach of the school

We adopt a student-centred approach which supports children in developing transferable skills which they can use throughout their lives. As an IB World School, our students are encouraged to think independently and take responsibility for their learning journey. Students develop cultural awareness by participating in social projects in the local community and considering the local, national and global context of what they learn. We develop socially responsible individuals who are encouraged to find a balance between the intellectual, physical and emotional aspects of their lives.
