Experienced Teachers and State of the Art Equipment
Our teachers work together as a team, upholding the ethos of the Sandton School Group to enable learners, and to ensure a safe and healthy learning and teaching environment. Our key philosophy at the Sandton School Group is that every learner is unique and deserves to be treated as such. The main reason that we have small classes is so that the teachers are able to focus on each learner’s individual needs.
Our school motto is “Soaring to excellence”, and we feel that this inclusive approach to teaching enables us to live up to our motto. Learners are taught to be independent, and a love for learning is fostered . They are encouraged to challenge themselves and to strive to be the best that they can be.
We have installed state-of-the-art Smart Boards, which means that teaching can be done in real time – for exmple, if there is an earthquake in Japan, the teacher can get the information to the pupils immediately.
We are mindful of the danger of an over-reliance on technology, and strive to balance our teaching strategies. We are investigating using iPads, but have observed that in many schools they just replace textbooks.
We joined ISASA because membership enables us to benchmark ourselves against schools in the same category as us, as well as giving us access to all the current developments in education in South Africa and beyond.
Our staff benefit by having access to a qide variety of relevant workshops, and to ongoing training.
Membership also gives us the credibility with prospective parents, who geel more comfortable that the standards they require are being met.
Being an independent school is very important to us. It enables us to put systems in place that benefit our students. It also gives us a degree of flexibility in working with the curriculum, and allows us to extend our students to reach their full potential. The other advantage of being an independent school is that we can limit our student-teacher ratio at a level that optimises teaching and learning. We are very excited about the journey that we have embarked on with the Sandton School Group. We look to the future with great excitement and relish the challenges, which we are convinced we can overcome.
