The school applies the Montessori system from Foundation stage and up to the end of the Cambridge Primary stage (up to year 6). Montessori is an international educational method which is characterized by specific up-to-date philosophies with a special emphasis on independence, freedom of choice of activity from within a prescribed range of options as well as a constructive way of teaching where students learn the concepts via working with tangible, specialized educational materials rather than the traditional lecturing style.
The aim is to ensure that each child develops his/her full potential and becomes a healthy well educated adult that can benefit the society.
Children who attend Montessori schools develop the following qualities:
• Academic excellence
• Self motivation
• Lifelong love of learning
• Self control
• Confidence and competence
• Social awareness
• Spiritual awareness
• Creativity and originality of thought
The aims of the Montessori system are as follows:

• A sense of self-discipline and responsibility for their own actions.
