Recognising that actively building respectful and sustainable relationships with other human beings and with our planet builds strong social capital which, in turn, supports our wellbeing. In doing so we acknowledge our shared cultures and histories.

Encouraging behaviours which encompass notions of innovation, originality, liberation and generative problem-solving in all that we do.

Nurturing a culture of integrity at our International school is paramount, where honesty, ethical conduct, and academic integrity are cherished values. We strive to create an environment that fosters trust and respect, shaping students into individuals of strong character and integrity. Join us in building a community where these principles guide our collective pursuit of knowledge and growth.

Developing the capacity to question without fear. Understanding that 'success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.'
