Mr Cosslett BSc (Hons) PGCE
Head of Senior School
"We believe that education is a vital component in the process of human development and every pupil should have the opportunity to fulfill his or her academic potential, succeeding at his or her own level across the curriculum”
Our curriculum is based on the internationally recognised National Curriculum of England, supported by the Cambridge Senior Curriculum and IGCSE courses of study. We focus on a series of achievements and objectives, around which our lessons and activities are structured. All teaching resources such as reading books, text books, interactive displays, teaching support resources and a multitude of other resources are ordered and sourced from the UK.

Recommended Reading Lists
We are committed to encouraging all our students in the Senior School to develop a love for reading. Every day after lunch our students all gather together in their form groups and read for 15 minutes from 1.45pm - 2.00pm. They are also encouraged to read outside of the school day and in order to support this careful nurturing of a love for reading, we have created recommended reading lists for them. Please see our current reading lists below:
"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
- George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragonsculum
"Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are."
- Mason Cooley
