Within the Lower School, our EYFS students have continuous opportunities to take their learning outside into our construction, water, music, sand and gardening zones. Within Years 1 to 4, each corridor is a themed bespoke learning zone: Creative Zone, Active Zone, STEAM Zone and Digital Zone in which we continue to promote active learning centred and real-life learning opportunities. Students across Lower School have the opportunity to work in these specialised areas collaboratively on projects utilising our specialist equipment and technology which includes an indoor climbing wall, food technology kitchen, science lab, art workshops, green screen, 3D printers and robotics. Playground areas for younger students include innovative play equipment, quiet zones and markings for structed play.
As students progress into Middle School, our shared learning zones become additional break out spaces: environments where students are able to facilitate their own learning or work with their peers or a teacher, supported with the custom-designed furniture and both independent and shared work stations.
Subject specific and purpose built teaching areas ensure that Middle and Upper school students can fully embrace 21st century learning and prepare themselves for their future roles. Our science laboratories and technology workshops provide the right resources for complete coverage of practical activities and the delivery of an enhanced curriculum.
