The school has a Mac-based IT Lab and computers and Smartboards in all classrooms. ICT (Information Communication Technology) is seen as an integrated tool that helps students both develop and express their understanding.
The music room has its own set of computers for recording student compositions and a range of percussion instruments, recorders and a clavichord. Two sound-proofed music practice rooms facilitate the extension of our already impressive instrumental programme with Suzuki violin and cello on offer to all children from Kindergarten upwards and a further choice of instruments from Grade 4 upwards.
The library/media centre is a central learning area for the school. It houses an abundance of resources to support the PYP programme, the reading interests of students and adults, and is a means to research and carry out the inquiry process.
Students visit the library once a week. Authors and storytellers visit the school, and book fairs and book displays are arranged as part of a complete literacy programme.
A multi-purpose hall provides space for lunches, sport, whole school ‘Town Meetings’ and concerts. It is also used to host our Parent Education workshops and PTA events.
Further sports facilities are available in our dedicated off-site sports centre at Charteris, a 15-minute bus ride away. Here a refurbished sports centre offers a large multi-sport hall, climbing wall and dance studio. It is used for off-site PE lessons for older students and our extensive programme of extra-curricular activities, shared with our sister primary campus at Hampstead.
Our Early Childhood classes use our garden, which is equipped with a climbing frame, sandpit and an array of equipment for children to use.
An edible courtyard offers a quiet space for vegetable and flower growing, along with a variety of nature-enhancing features such as birdhouses and a bug hotel.
