The Key to Individual Learning
Small classes in the Junior School enable the strong focus on core literacy and numeracy skills to have the optimum effect.
In the middle years, small classes enable individual attention to be given to students as they further develop their analytical thinking and reasoning skills.
In the Senior School (Years 9 to 12), small classes combined with a breadth of subject choices enable students to develop their skills through regular feedback during class and with coursework, and be thoroughly prepared for examinations.
