Message from Academic Director

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our beautiful, green, purpose built campus where children are at the centre of our practise. When you visit, and I hope you do, you will find a positive and safe school environment where we place high priority on outdoor learning, community and wellbeing.
Our caring,creative and dedicated teachers follow the British Early Years Foundation Stage Framework to plan thoughtfully for each individual child to ensure engagement and enthusiasm.  We employ a play-based learning approach that is rooted in the Reggio Emilia philosophy of exploration and enquiry where children take the lead in their learning. Our early years specialist teachers plan in response to individual interests and skills in order to effectively deepen understanding, build confidence and encourage independence.

At the heart of our school is the belief in educating the whole child and we strongly believe that all children can achieve given the right educational environment. We value our relationships with families greatly and you will find a very special school community here—one built on a commitment to developing a lifelong love of learning, a firm foundation of core values, and a deep belief in the capacity of our young people to excel. My hope for every child we are privileged to welcome is to empower all to have the skills, confidence and resilience to take on any challenges they may face in life.

“When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.” – Dalai Lama

Our Philosophy

The Apple Tree Characteristics

                    Cooperation                    Respect                    Empathy                 Achievement 

We believe that each child is unique and, that by personalising instruction to meet each child’s individual needs, we can enable them to thrive and unleash their full potential.

We believe that child-led inquiry and play-based learning opportunities are vital to encourage children’s development; enabling them to make sense of their world.

We believe in exploring children’s passions and curiosities and enabling provisions to be made for active and heuristic learning experiences.

We believe in providing a safe, supportive and welcoming environment, where our classrooms are enriched with playful inquiry. Your child will also have regular access to stimulating outdoor learning opportunities.

We believe in the importance of providing physical, social and emotional guidance to educate your child holistically.

We believe in open communication with parents and encourage close collaboration between home and school to inspire and expand your child’s experiences and development.

We believe in nurturing the qualities of equality, diversity, inclusion and respect for all.
