Head Teacher's Letter

At The Mount School we provide a caring, friendly atmosphere in which we believe all children are special. A happy child who feels comfortable, safe and appreciated will learn and make progress. The all-round education we offer aims to find the best in every pupil.

All children learn differently. Our broad and challenging curriculum takes the best practice from traditional and contemporary teaching methods allowing children to achieve their potential and discover their talents and strengths. We teach children to be independent learners, to share their knowledge and ideas with each other and to work collaboratively in investigations.

We focus on the positive. Every child is encouraged to try their best with their efforts academically and socially being valued and rewarded through stickers, house points and our weekly merit badge.

Beginning in Lower Kindergarten, all the Staff give their dedicated, professional expertise to deliver inspiring, engaging lessons with high expectations of outcomes. The high standard achieved is reflected in the number of secondary school places offered to our Form VI pupils with scholarships being awarded for Sport, Music and Drama as well as for academic achievement.

We prepare our pupils for the wider world. The Mount School encourages respect for each other and children enjoy an excellent relationship with their teachers. Our building and grounds are welcoming, secure and stimulating and promote respect for the environment. Pupils are keen to take on responsibilities by serving on the Eco-School council, as classroom monitors, Team Captains, as a House Captain or as Head Boy or Head Girl.

Our pupils are our greatest ambassadors. We believe our children are happy and confident. They have fun and enjoy their learning and we encourage them to discover and build on the best of themselves. They take great pride in their school and express this articulately and with self assurance as demonstrated when they show visitors around.

I invite you to come and experience for yourself the wonderful learning establishment that is The Mount School.
