The latest research conducted in Britain has shown that nothing matters more in a child's education than having a teacher who truly inspires them. Any of our students could have told them this. Any of our students or parents would say that the greatest asset the school has is the commitment and dedication of the teachers. They are all determined to do everything they can for every student in their care, always going the extra mile to form a bond with each child and give them all the help they need. They all make themselves available to students outside of class time - during Breaks, after school and even during the holidays - to provide the individual attention that is such a key part of the school.
A wonderful sense of teamwork exists in both schools with teachers working together to help get the best out of students and to share ideas about how to teach a particular lesson or get the best out of a certain pupil. This stimulates all the staff to strive for the very highest standards in all areas of school life.
Continuity is a key reason for this success. Unlike many international schools where teachers stay for two or three years before moving on, we are fortunate that the majority of both our local and expatriate staff have been at the school for a long time. This promotes consistent leadership, facilitates long-term planning and means that both teachers and senior members of staff know every student and what they are capable of. When a child establishes a rapport with a particular teacher, they can rely on that teacher being there throughout their time at the school to encourage and support them.
Our in-house training seminars succeed in keeping teachers abreast of the latest developments in the field of education. These regular workshops, which include an Induction Week at the start of each academic year, provide an ideal opportunity for teachers to learn from one another, and help to strengthen the team dynamic.
