A message from the newly appointed Principal

A message from our new Principal – Martin Harris

Now is such an amazing time to open a brand-new school, given the enormous changes taking place in teaching and learning. We have moved from an era that was individual in focus and driven by subject content (how many exams can I pass?) and where the teacher was an authority figure, towards a consensus that learning is a process that happens individually and collectively, that our pupils should be emotionally aware, that they should be able to master a range of skills, and that they must have the resilience to be ready for whatever the future might throw at them.

It is even more exciting to embody these convictions in what will be a self-consciously urban school within a contemporary neighbourhood. My new school is located in a listed and industrial-feel building with a low carbon footprint, where the ‘upcycled’ feel is part of the school’s identity. Environmental stewardship is key. We will be offering a new-generation education within an international curriculum that emphasises tech-enabled learning collaboration, and a high degree of personal choice. The aim is to keep children busy, happy and fulfilled. Our children will be to move on to a wide range of recognised post-school studies having received a holistic, positive and world-class school experience.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
