- A fully rounded and balanced education which nurtures the whole child: academically, socially and spiritually;
- An emphasis on academic excellence, dual language acquisition and the tools for success in a globalised world;
- A bilingual and multicultural learning environment which fosters respect for diversity;
- A supportive and nurturing school life which seeks to produce confident, balanced and socially responsible individuals.
