Greengates is a British International School with a strong and successful tradition in education: it is a multi-cultural community committed to inspiring all individuals to reach their full potential. We wish to build on our past success and excellent reputation while retaining the unique elements of the school that make it such a rich and stimulating environment for learning. However, whilst the Greengates experience will not change, our curriculum will continue to evolve to meet the needs of the 21st century. We must challenge ourselves to grow beyond what we may consider capable and aspire to reach new levels of excellence.
Our curriculum is based on the International Primary Curriculum, British National Curriculum at KS3, the IGCSE programme and the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. Throughout the school, we aim to: ensure our students have a broad education; understand what it means to be international citizens; have a strong moral compass; contribute in the wider community; and have the tools, personal attributes and characteristics that will ultimately mean that they enjoy happy and successful futures. In particular, we focus on developing key transferable skills, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, time management, teamwork, communication and information literacy. In addition, we place importance on the IPC personal attributes and the IB student characteristics.
So that each child reaches their true potential, we endeavour to provide the very best possible all-around education, involving excellent teaching and pastoral care, a wide range of co-curricular opportunities and first-class facilities. This would not be possible without a team of highly qualified and diverse teachers from around the world. As a result, we achieve excellent IGCSE and IB Diploma results, which help our students secure places at top international universities, which we are very proud of.
I hope that this website will provide you with all the information you need about Greengates School at this stage.
Mr. Rupert Cox
