Our teachers recognise that in many ways, the role of the teacher has changed. In the twenty-first century classroom, the teacher is not to be found at the front of a silent group of children delivering instruction. Rather, the teacher will be moving round the room, observing, asking questions and guiding the pupils. Our teachers pursue further education and training by going on courses, interacting with teachers from other schools and engaging in up-to-date technology to ensure they remain relevant and current in their ideas.
We offer girls a wide choice of subjects, ensuring that each girl can do subjects according to her particular strengths.
