Navigating change

Photo by Alys Tomlinson

We will equip our students to thrive in uncertain futures and navigate change by developing the following attributes:


The enthusiasm to seek out new perspectives, to create and build on existing knowledge.


Confidence in their abilities, and the ability to respond positively in various situations.


The willingness to adapt and remain motivated, overcome obstacles, and deal with ambiguity, uncertainty, and rejection.
