Our team

All teachers and assistants share a strong interest in languages ​​and innovative pedagogies and work together to achieve a common goal: to inspire creativity, a love of learning and international mindedness within a nurturing and collaborative learning environment and empowering students to become committed global citizens.

The relationships between adults and students within our school are founded on communication, understanding and mutual respect.

In addition to organising and monitoring activities within their classes, the teaching team is involved in all day-to-day activities including educational outings, naps, mealtimes and transitional periods between activities.

“Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
