Culture

A well-rounded education.

We strongly believe that a full education must include an exploration of Culture. Coveted Tutors support students in their journey of cultural discovery in every class. Students are made aware of the vast extent of cultural diversity and its expression, including its influence on modern life. Culture is taught alongside English and Mathematics content, reinforcing the wide application of the Core Subjects and expanding our modes of teaching beyond traditional learning exercises.

Our cultural focus can be witnessed below, their value immortalised in the wisdom of inspirational minds.

To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art; study the art of science. Learn how to see. Realise that everything connects to everything else.

Art

Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.

History

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.

Language

Clear language engenders clear thought, and clear thought is the most important benefit of education.

Literature & Poetry

Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic.

Music

Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.

Plato

Religion

We may have different religions, different languages, different coloured skin, but we all belong to one human race.

Politics

What is the first part of politics? Education. The second? Education. And the third? Education.
