Education is an Experience
St Edwards is an Independent private school which accepts day and boarding students where education is an experience that most all of us will have had, be it informal or formal. This experience has shaped us into the person we are today. Whether we learned from our own experiences, from our parents, grandparents, friends or teachers, we have gone through the 'learning experience'.
The key to our success
Dedicated, caring and experienced professionals are the key to our success. The focus at SEC is on students Thinking, Understanding and finally Learning. At St Edward's we deliver our lessons with the most current, tried and proven international methodologies. You will see our teachers practicing Visual Thinking (VT) during their lessons. VT has its origins with the Project Zero Group, Harvard Graduate School for Education and is recognised worldwide as a tried and tested methodology that has withstood the test of time.
Excellence in all Areas
At St Edward's we believe that students need to strive for excellence in all areas of their lives, personal as well as academic. A clear and a well-defined understanding amongst all those involved in the process; teachers, administrators, the family and of course the students will help in a successful outcome. Realistic achievable goals, towards which students, parents and staff can direct their energies, will also contribute to the ultimate success of the student. A holistic, inclusive approach to student development is evident in our approach to our students at St Edward's.
Students who graduate from St Edward's will know that they are responsible to a large degree for their own success. Students encouraged and guided by our educators, will understand the benefits of taking responsibility for their own learning. This awareness has stood our graduates well through their careers and in the decisions they have made.
