The traits of character, confidence, curiosity and compassion are what we aim to inculcate in Cambridge School. Our role, quite simply is to develop the potential and proclivities within each individual student, leading to a life of individual fulfilment. We ensure that academic skills are understood in context so that they may be applied only for good. Teaching and training in science, literature, history, mathematics, art or games – whatever the subject – is based on this philosophy.
The aim of the school is to encourage deep interest and learning. This is achieved by encouraging children to ask questions which their own reading and guided explorations or experiments can help them to answer. Interaction between students and teachers make learning lively and individually meaningful. That between students themselves as in group projects promotes teamwork where complementary skills emphasise the multidisciplinary nature of real-word problem-solving. Students find motivation in working on assignments they have chosen themselves, learning skills and techniques which answer to their own interests.
Classes are equipped with TV screens on which multimedia content makes learning easier. Rote learning is discouraged. On the other hand it is the application of skills and techniques that is treated as important. We believe that this stands our students in good stead when they are preparing for examinations – in school and after.
