Our teaching strategies are grounded in metacognitive and retrieval practice pedagogies. These approaches enable students to learn more effectively, enhance memory retention, and establish meaningful connections between subjects and real-life events or current affairs. Additionally, we empower students to link their learning to their community, understand their geographic locality, and develop their identity as national, European, and global citizens. Metacognition, defined as "thinking about your own thinking," forms the foundation of our approach, emphasizing processes such as planning, tracking, and assessing one's understanding or performance (John H. Flavell, 1985).

Interwoven throughout our curriculum are strands of Personal, Social, Moral, Spiritual, and Cultural education (Personal Development). For more information, please visit our Spirituality page - here
