We make sure our teachers keep up to date with the latest developments in teaching and learning and we're very proud of the fact that our bespoke approach to teaching and learning has evolved over time to meet the specific needs ofour children. Importantly, it's an approachbased on best practice drawn from the work of colleagues, academics and schools all over the world.
