Halcyon is a thinking community, committed to nurturing engaged, reflective, life-ready, global citizens. Halcyon is committed to innovation, collaboration and community. Students enjoy a challenging academic programme, an innovative approach to wellbeing and an integrated digital learning environment.
Halcyon has been inspected and rated as Outstanding in all categories by Ofsted in 2017. The school is certified as both a Google Reference School and an Apple Regional Training Centre.
Our mission is to provide an exceptional education that draws out the unique potential of each student, and we do this through innovation, collaboration and community.
To be innovative is to dare to explore, to have the courage to discover, and to value and learn from mistakes. We nurture this culture, always asking how learning and teaching can be more effective, embracing difficult questions and demanding more effective, research-led, answers. We stretch our students with a challenging IB curriculum, enriched by a fully integrated digital culture; we continue to develop a positive, student-centred wellbeing programme; and we provide the opportunity for all students to explore new ideas, and have their own, self-directed, personal learning time.
Collaboration is at the core of our practice, as life-long learners and as teachers. We intentionally create an environment that encourages and develops collaborative learning and teaching. This exists not only in our classrooms, but also in our open learning spaces, in our student-mentor coaching dialogues, and through the passion of our student leadership and engagement. All this is enabled and enhanced by our commitment to digital learning, using the most innovative apps and technologies to inspire more effective ways of creating and learning together.
Halcyon champions an understanding that the best way to succeed is to do so together. Just as we value the possibility of every student to fulfil their unique potential, we actively nurture the same opportunities for growth for everyone in our community - learning together to build and support our school.
Halcyon takes pride in its commitment to the environment. We constantly seek new ways to mitigate our impact on the world and to educate and inspire our community to pass it forward. As a community, our philosophy is to learn through doing and this is modelled in our commitment to improve our sustainability through positive action.
