Their values

  • We seek the best in everyone to realise individual and collective potential

Their approach

  • Holistic, cross-curricular education that delivers transferable skills for 21st century life
  • Immersive, practical and interactive learning in which users discuss, make decisions and then do, rather than simply learning facts
  • Awareness of surroundings to make good risk assessments, confidently make better decisions and deal with individual and collective challenges
  • Blended learning where online, in-school and outdoor strands are closely integrated
  • Provision of a realistic dilemma-based virtual Skill City as the core resource
