Problem solving, resilience, tech, innovation and creativity

There is a keen focus on critical thinking and strategy in co-curricular life, perhaps most explicitly in the school’s collaborative problem solving groups, which complements the growth mind-set attitude adopted by the students. The ability to tackle a problem head-on and to embrace and move on from failure by effectively engaging different methods of approach not only speaks to the core of learning itself, but is invaluable to a vast range of modern careers, with many recruiters asking for examples of lateral thinking and problem solving. In its focus on this skill, the school aims to prepare students for the transition from school to their adult lives.
