Part of our philosophy is for our children to spend as much time outdoors as possible and to enjoy the nature of the island. We use the local beaches in a variety of different ways
We sometimes use the beach for our sports sessions. A combination of warm ups, yoga, boot camp style exercises and team games such as beach volleyball and capture the flag ensure that our students are challenged physically and learn new skills in a fresh and beautifully inspiring setting.
As a school, we work hard to educate our students about marine conservation and plastic pollution. As part of the curriculum, we collaborate with the Save the Med foundation to deliver their Dos Manos Schools Programme, supporting their vision of creative education and community action. We regularly participate in beach cleans around the island, working towards a common local cause. Subjects such as Geography and Art lend themselves to trips to the beach, where our students can explore and develop a range of skills from mapping the local area, discovering beach wildlife, to sketching boats at the sailing club. We encourage our staff and students to take advantage of our local beaches, for them to develop a sense of wonder and respect for nature.
As part of the Orbital group, our students also have the opportunity to participate in a range of cultural exchange programmes.
