The school believes that an effective educational programme requires outstanding teachers who will implement a clear and balanced curriculum. Emphasis is thus placed on individual reading and research in the library. Lessons are supplemented by audio/visuals, handouts and fieldwork where possible to enhance the level of understanding. All teaching is designed to develop depth of thought as well as the acquisition of knowledge.

The favourable staff-pupil ratio means that there will be close staff involvement with every student. Individual difficulties are attended to through special tutorials.
