Scholars’ Schools academic ethos is focused on encouraging the scholars to utilize their talents and develop their intellectual and creative interests so that they remain interesting and interested young men and women for the rest of their professional and personal lives. They need to understand their own culture and history, as well as their own geographical, scientific and spiritual theory and language. The schools’ academic environment is constructed such that the scholars are able to develop their knowledge and interest in these areas in an international context and around the global world in which they are born and will live.
Students at the Scholars’ School are expected to be independent thinkers, develop first class critical reading, writing and analysis skills, learn to understand the value of research across all areas of the curriculum and be self-motivated and self-driven through a genuine love of the subject and not only by intrinsic rewards. Service and an understanding of each other’s cultural backgrounds and religions is a crucial aspect of academic and wider life at Scholars’ School.
