Our belief is that children learn best through hands-on experiences, in an environment where they are active participants in their learning. S107’s teachers are experienced and passionate about children’s learning and development. Classes are taught by qualified international teachers and supported by Teaching Assistants working together to support children’s progress. Our teachers are experts at leading the learning and plan core subjects in literacy, mathematics, arts, science, and social studies including geography and history. This is enhanced by specialists teaching classes in art, design and technology, music, physical education, swimming and world languages.
Collaborative learning is at the heart of our curriculum, and helps to foster the development of skills that contribute to students’ personal, emotional and academic success. We recognise the potential of each child and adopt an inclusive approach that accommodates different learning styles and needs.
At S107 we are proud of our small community feel, where relationships come first. Our students are supported to build strong relationships with their teachers, their peers and the wider school. Meaningful links are made between school and home, as we recognise the importance of each child’s home and family experience in supporting their development.
We celebrate the diverse international community we serve through celebrations of important cultural events throughout the year, always striving to include all members through events such as our popular international day.
Social-emotional development is integrated into the curriculum and learning, and is supported by services such as student counselling.
Experiential learning outside the classroom through class trips and community action inspires students and enriches the broad curriculum. Our vast green campus with extensive natural space is used extensively to support outdoor learning. Children are also encouraged to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities to broaden their experiences, from the arts, to sports and academics.
From Year 3 upwards, students participate in annual Residential trips, to deepen the learning and develop their teamwork, independence, responsibility towards the environment, and eco-awareness.
