HOW we teach 

teaches more than 

what we teach

We offer a full-time learning experience for teenagers who want their studies to be relevant, entrepreneurial and filled with arts, a community of like-minded peers and supportive, cool educators. During the school year, you will set your own goals, work on real-life passion projects, while gaining access to tools for reaching and exceeding your dreams. You will have mentors, guidance and expert college counsellors to make sure the path is not only creative and fun, but also leads to progress and results.

Real life project work for 21st century skills development, following consistent design processes with a real impact.


Learning happens everywhere. So each week we spend a day out in nature or in the city, exploring and getting our hands dirty.

our world

A wholly integrated learning experience giving exposure to what our world has to offer: nature, people and cultures.


Opportunity to continue project work, or join a language class, arts and music courses, game clubs or sports.


learning goals

We are designing a learning experience that nurtures the best in us. A programme that exposes us to foundational knowledge about our world, develops our entrepreneurial skills and mindset, and also promotes our wellbeing by helping us become kind, balanced and healthy people.


Our programme development is ongoing. We are using some of the best curricula from around the world to build the core elements, such as the National Curriculum for England, the Cloud Institute's Education for Sustainability curriculum, and project-based learning processes from the Innovation Unit and Ideo's Design Thinking for Educators.



when a student has voice & choice

To put it simply, student agency gives students voice and choice in how and what they learn. It results in activities that are meaningful and relevant to learners. It is driven by their interests, often self-initiated with appropriate guidance from teachers. As our kids grow and mature, they need less and less scaffolding. They need to take their lives into their own hands.



REAL School is working with the Lumiar education network to change education worldwide. REAL School's project-based methodology is supported by the Lumiar Digital Mosaic, a platform that helps manage and make visible the learning in modern learning environments.
