As one of our senior Secondary School students, you will work closely with our carefully-selected team of teachers and boarding specialists, whose collective purpose is to ensure that you settle quickly into school life, adapt well to the demands of our programmes and focus on attaining the highest academic levels.
The staff are not here to hold your hand through your studies: their aim is to turn you into an independent learner, to refine your skills of analysis and interpretation, to bring out in you the best possible academic outcomes, and to prepare you for life as a university undergraduate.
The Sixth Form team is led by Rachel Batty, who has 25 years of teaching experience. She is a resourceful senior manager and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme specialist, who has worked in international schools in three different countries.
