Our Ethos

Each of our schools is as unique as our pupils but we are united in our mission to deliver outstanding education.

We set extremely high standards for our students then we support and challenge them every day to achieve beyond expectations. All our schools follow the strongest international curriculums with a focus on English and the school's native language. This provides our students with the greatest number of appealing opportunities once they graduate.

Our personalised approach includes instilling strong values, sharing an international outlook, and creating a supportive community for pupils and parents alike. We support our core curriculum with a broad range of extra-curricular programmes to nurture every student's interests and skills.

Most importantly, we never rest, we continually innovate and adapt so our schools always deliver the highest quality education.

The Orbital Group is guided by five core values. These flow through our central office and our schools, guiding our team, our teachers and our students every day.

Excellence, Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Compassion
