In a world that is being transformed by technology, it is important that young people know not only how to consume technology, but are given the knowledge and skills to create their own technology. The World Economic Forum listed the skills essential to success in the world of 2020 as being problem solving, critical thinking and creativity.  Our students will interface with industry to experience project-based learning, learning-by-doing and team-work. The curriculum will include both the Creative Application of Science and Maths (CASM) and the Arts to ensure a fully rounded education. This will involve an innovative approach to teaching and learning in order to develop the range of skills that many employers consider are currently lacking in school leavers: experience, initiative, enthusiasm, verbal communication, ability to fit in, reliability, and basic literacy. The vision is to set up a high-performing school for students aged 4-19 to become equipped with the skills and qualifications required to play an active and successful role the knowledge economy of a dynamic digital world. Students from a wide range of backgrounds will experience an authentic education for the 21stcentury which combines computational thinking and creativity with rigorous academic knowledge.
