The learning programme in our high school classrooms are highly individualised and focuses on independent learning with the expectation that all students take responsibility for their own learning. With small group learning and one-one tutorials being the norm, students are able manage the pace of learning to suit their individual needs. Students are also offered a range of learning experiences to optimise their learning styles and these include
- Small group sessions
- Flipped classrooms
- One-One tutorials

Apart from delivering academic knowledge & skills, the high school years will focus on providing invaluable feedback for students, teachers and parents about the strengths and abilities of students. Teachers then use this information to make effective use of resources to maximize the success of students in taking on the certifying examinations.
The Arts and Physical Education are an important part of our learning environment and students can choose to participate in these areas for further learning as well. Our teachers support students engaged in specialized extra curricular training such as sports and the arts, to match their individualised schedules.
Topical content and other resources for lessons and activities are again based on Edexcel resources and the latest sources from internet and books.
