The school:

We are a future-oriented, bilingual school offering a student-centred and holistic education to children of 3 months to 18 years of age. We are grounded in our school values and offer an exciting community and learning environment that fosters both a local and global mindset.

Do you believe that education should prepare children for what they need to be successful in the future rather than what was done in the past? Are you excited at the prospect of incorporating real-life situations and relevancy into your teaching? Do you put a child’s needs over the needs of a system? Is interdisciplinary teaching part of your educational philosophy? Do you believe in working closely in a team? Would you rather talk about what your student has learned as opposed to what grade they got on their test? Do you believe that assessments can take on many different types of formats? Are you of the opinion that school is more than just lessons in the classroom? Do open learning spaces excite you? Do you view parents as partners in the process of their child’s education? Have your communication and organisation skills been an asset to you? Are you a lifelong learner who views teaching as a vocation? Have you learnt as much from your previous students as they have learnt from you? Would you like to be involved with a vibrant international community? Do you believe in our mission and are you keen to contribute towards our school’s development?

If this sounds like you, we encourage you to consider joining our community where a warm and supportive team, inspiring students, committed parents and an international environment that is passionate about learning awaits you.
