Schools must realise they cannot continue to operate solely as transmitters of knowledge. At Nord Anglia Education, we share international best practice across our schools to provide personalised learning experiences for all our students. Teachers tailor their approach to suit the needs of each individual child, enabling them to not only excel academically, but guide them to develop cognitive abilities that will make them fit for the future. This means the cultivation of both hard and soft skill sets ranging from coding and interpreting big data, to cultural competence, empathy, collaboration and the ability to communicate confidently.
As a family of schools comprising over 50,000 students from 56 schools in 26 countries, NAE represents a truly globalised student body. Our unique position has enabled us to enhance the globally-respected curricula we offer through collaborations with some of the world’s best organisations, exposing students to extraordinary, creative and truly cutting-edge learning experiences and opportunities.
Through our collaboration with The Juilliard School, one of the world’s most renowned performing arts conservatories, we have responded to a call for greater cultural competency, creative problem-solving skills and the ability to communicate confidently. By delivering an enriched learning experience through state-of-the-art keyboard labs and inspirational live performances from visiting Juilliard artist faculty to our schools, we help students to fall in love with the arts, and channel their emotions to express themselves authentically and confidently in all aspects of life.
Through our collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the world’s number one university according to QS Rankings, we revolutionised our approach to STEAM learning to encourage our students to be acutely aware and curious about the world around them and seek new and innovative ways to solve real world problems. MIT’s mens et manus (mind and hand) motto moves their provision of learning away from the artificial silos of single subject teaching. Instead, students are exposed and influenced by the world’s top minds where they can learn to experiment and push their boundaries to succeed in an increasingly competitive environment — a learning philosophy which we incorporate into our approach to integrated learning in our schools.
