Message from the School Head

Selecting the right school for your child is one of the most important choices you have to make. Surefoot International School is a dedicated and hardworking school community who believe that children achieve well when taught within a positive atmosphere where each individual is valued and nurtured. Hopefully, our prospectus will provide you with useful information and enable you to gain an insight into our school. However, a visit to the school is the only way to really appreciate the uniqueness of Surefoot International School, so please feel welcome to come and look around and get a real sense of our warm family learning environment.

Providing the best education through continued school improvement is at the heart of all we do. Our aim is to give prospective parents a real sense of the school through this prospectus. We work hard to ensure that all of our children are cherished and accepted in a school family that encourages and celebrates diversity. We work in partnership with parents and the wider community to offer many opportunities for the development of the whole child, developing personally and academically, encouraging a lifestyle based on Christian values and teaching.

We offer a blend of the traditional and the contemporary: a safe, secure and well-resourced environment which fosters respect for self, other children and adults, and the environment. Equal importance is placed on creating a caring and supportive environment which allows each child to become confident, self-reliant and able to articulate feelings and ideas. Our close community ensures that all children feel good about themselves and acquire a high level of self-esteem. In a highly academic and creative learning atmosphere children are able to experience enjoyment of school and celebrate the attainment of their full and highest capability.

The school works hard to preserve its cultural roots, teaching children to know their own heritage, but at the same time learning to understand and respect the different backgrounds of others. As a school we seek to achieve our aims within the context of the Christian faith. However, we warmly welcome children of families from all backgrounds whose parents/careers will support the education of their children in a school with clear values, high staffing ratios, a family-centred approach, modern facilities and high standards.

Christopher Spring.
