TEACHER-LED TECHNOLOGY

WPS teachers guide all students through the thoughtful use of technology to enhance their learning. Our resources include 3D printers, robotics and coding equipment, innovation labs, iPads, SMART boards, and advanced computer programs.

Using practical, hands-on problem-solving techniques, your child can develop transferable skills useful in the STEAM subjects. These include creativity, curiosity, resilience, resourcefulness, collaboration, and confidence.

Our teachers also lead discussions around your child’s learning through market-leading apps, where they can seamlessly connect with you to showcase their progress. WPS parents gain a window into their child's learning, boosting the home-to-school partnership.

HIGH STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE

At Windermere Prep, we hire the highest quality teaching candidates, using global channels and local efforts to recruit and ensure all meet our standards.

WPS teachers undergo continual professional development to stay at the cutting-edge of best practices in the world, learning top tools and resources from Nord Anglia University. They also undergo regular, collaborative performance reviews, so we can evaluate and reflect upon our teaching to deliver our best.

As a highlight of our IB Diploma Program, our IB teachers are certified and trained by the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organization) in their subjects, so they’re especially qualified to deliver the IB approach, methodology, and assessment procedures — giving our students a higher chance of success.
