Real school for?
We are looking for families who believe that our kids need a new kind of education to equip children with skills and mindsets to thrive in a future that will change fast. Families who value respect, curiosity, kindness, empathy, and caring for our world will fit well in the school.
Just as importantly, we are looking for those who are excited to help build a community, who understand the entrepreneurial challenges of a young school and are inspired to create a diverse and positive environment.
We aim to build a culturally and socio-economically diverse community. Such a community pushes students to incorporate multiple viewpoints and experiences; it enables them to honour what is unique within themselves; and it develops the empathy, social agility, and cross-cultural competence that is essential to life in the twenty-first century.
Please note that currently we do not have staffing provision to accommodate children with special needs, severe learning differences or serious behavioural issues. As the school grows, our intention is to create a diverse community that would be a safe environment for students of all abilities, but at this stage, this is not the case.
The primary language of teaching at the REAL School is English. While the school welcomes students with all English abilities, preference is given to those with strong English skills, so others could learn from them. For students older than 9, we require that they are conversational in English, to be able to engage in projects and activities. For pupils who are above 11, reasonable fluency in spoken and written English is required. The School will assess English proficiency as part of the application process.
For the 2020/21 school year, the school welcomes students from ages 6 to 13. The school will grow with the children until they graduate high school to provide an all-through learning experience up until high school graduation. Students spend their days in multi-age groups, which are flexible, based on your child’s need and capabilities.
