We are in the process of registering an independent Montessori Primary School catering for children from the age of 5 to 11. We hope to welcome our first students in January 2022, with the full intake available for September 2022/23. To register your non-obligation interest and to receive updates, click here.
The British National Curriculum is followed by the majority of private and state funded schools in England, Scotland and Wales. For this reason, we are going to follow its principles, but, unlike most ordinary schools, the Curriculum targets will be delivered and secured through the Montessori pedagogy and progressive real life learning to provide education well suited for 21st century and beyond.
Students will learn in vertically organized classes, so they can learn not only from and share experiences with their teachers, but also each other. Through the Montessori pedagogy, the students are encouraged to be active learners by undertaking practical, hands-on activities and being responsible for their own learning, self-assessment, evaluation and time management. Although they will all follow the same core curriculum, learning is personalized and differentiated for each student through the use of weekly work and study plans to ensure that they thoroughly secure every learning outcome before moving onto the next concept. Weekly conferencing with the student's mentor, regular assessment and additional support when needed, will also ensure that all students have the best possible education.
It is only in the last few years, following growing awareness of climate change and environmental pollution, that sustainability has become a BIG topic around the globe. The Oxford English dictionary defines sustainability as 'the degree to which a process or enterprise is able to be maintained or continued while avoiding the long-term depletion of natural resources.'
As a modern and ecologically conscious school, it is our aim to educate all our students about ecological issues and sustainability. We believe that big advances are achieved through small steps, and as educators, it is our responsibility to make sure that children understand the importance of preserving natural resources, treasuring water, eliminating plastic and unnecessary waste of any kind. It is our mission to make sure that our children grow into responsible and climate change sensitive adults.
