Who's who

‘High quality teachers and support staff work closely and productively as a team’ - CfBT Education Trust May 2012

We believe that our greatest resource is our teachers. They are fully qualified and experienced with a special talent and enthusiasm for teaching using a child-centred approach. Our teachers work together as a team and we use their expertise to provide our children with the highest standards of teaching and learning. ‘Teachers’ impressive subject knowledge is used well to provide clear explanations and carefully structured activities.’ – BSO (British Schools Overseas) May 2015
