Our High School is a vibrant and enjoyable place to learn and excel in a diversity of subjects using modern and innovative teaching and learning methods. We hope you will join us soon to find out first hand what we have to offer.

100% IGCSE pass rate

In 2020, every single one of our Year 11 students passed every single one of their IGCSE exams with a C grade or higher.

Even better, over half of all awarded grades were an A or A*!

As a Cambridge Checkpoint School, our students take internationally recognised exams at the end of Year 9 – these provide a good prediction of future IGCSE performance and highlight any areas that need to be improved. Since our foundation, our student body has achieved a 100% pass rate and 86% of results ranking as “Excellent” or “Very Good”.

Excellent student-teacher ratios

Our school has a strong sense of community and is a place where no one is left behind. Teachers and students build strong relationships which allow teachers to tailor their instruction to all learners. This is something only possible in a single stream school with small class sizes.

We cap our classes at 20 students per class. This allows our teachers to spend more time addressing the individual needs of our students. It also means that our teachers have the time to support students outside of lessons when they need it.

Unique business and technology education

We are the only international school in Malawi to offer a Business and Enterprise course at Key Stage 3 (Years 7 to 9) where our students engage in practical simulated business activities – not just theoretical study.

With one-to-one tablets available and class laptops, our students are able to integrate technology into their studies. Our ICT and Digital Literacy lessons help them develop their understanding of key office software, such as MS Office, and the way that technology is changing our world.

In Computer Science and Design & Technology, our students get to solve complex problems and develop software to control robots and manipulate computer game environments.

Engaging and varied after-school programme

With sports like lacrosse and ultimate frisbee, our sporting programme goes way beyond the regular football and netball offerings at most schools (but don’t worry, we play those too!).

We also offer an extended academic programme with Spanish, Electronics, Graphic Design and Food Science, alongside other stimulating activities such as chess, debating and drama.

Daily school bus to and from Blantyre

Every morning, our school bus picks up from multiple locations in Blantyre to get your children to school safely on time. At the end of every school day, following the completion of our afternoon programmes, the school bus returns the children to Blantyre to their chosen drop off points.

As a small school, we ask our families what locations they need collecting from and arrange a suitable central pick up and drop off point accordingly to best take care of our school community.

    Academic and All-Round Excellence

    Our IGCSE class of 2020 are forecast a 100% pass-rate at Grades A* to C in all subjects. As a Cambridge Checkpoint School, our students take internationally recognised exams at the end of Year 9. To date, our student body has achieved a 100% pass rate and 86% of results ranking as “Excellent” or “Very Good”.

    Excellent student teacher ratios, with smaller class sizes, allow our students to choose more IGCSE subjects than they could at other schools, with up to 11 IGCSE courses available to each student.

    Our JASS programme (the first of its kind in Malawi) and our Rotary Interact Club give our students opportunities to plan and run fundraising events, and support local and international charities and community projects, such as supporting the local Jacaranda orphanage. These help our students to develop their leadership and organisational skills, whilst improving their sense of social responsibility.

    Business, Science and Technology Education

    We are the only international school in Malawi that offers Business & Enterprise Studies from Year 7. We recognise the importance of preparing students to lead their own businesses and departments, so our students all have opportunities to run simulated business activities.

    We are also the only school that runs separate Computer Science and ICT classes. Our ICT lessons are focused on the business applications of technology, such as MS Office, while Computer Science develops students’ engineering and problem-solving skills.

    As part of our commitment to STEM, our Computer Science and Design & Technology courses include website design, architectural drawing, graphic design, robotics, programming and 3D modelling and manufacture in partnership with The Polytechnic.

    Blended eLearning Platform

    We are proud of our excellent e-learning platform, provided through Google Classroom and supported by Google-certified teachers. We will continue to offer exceptional student support through this digital platform, supplementing the teaching we deliver in the classroom. Homework, additional resources and supporting materials will be available through Google Classroom.

    Google ClassroomThese 21st century tools help our students engage in creative and collaborative projects, both inside and outside the physical classroom. Sharing lessons through our e-learning platform allows absent students the opportunity to catch up and empowers students to revisit lessons and improve outcomes through effective revision.
