Nexus’ learners have an open and creative mindset for better critical thinking skills; learning how to build strong supportive relationships, understanding their own impulses, and developing empathy for others. Encouraging them to see the world from a global perspective, our learners are taught to become independent through experiences within and beyond the classroom, whilst technology is embedded in the learning process to enhance creativity.
In order to achieve this, The Nexus Way was developed as our guiding philosophy, adopting the key elements of Mindsets, Relationships, Inclusion, and Innovation.
Nexus learners demonstrate an open and creative mindset that encourages deep inquiry and critical thinking. By investigating concepts, learners develop a growing understanding that enables them to explore interconnected ideas.
Nexus learners thrive through effective learning-focused relationships in an ambitious and collaborative community. A restorative culture of respect and high expectations drives all that we do.
Nexus learners develop a strong understanding of themselves and a true empathy for others. They benefit from a world-class, learner-centred education that empowers them to discover their passions and achieve personal excellence.
Nexus learners are challenged through authentic, technology-rich and transformative learning experiences. Our innovative learning environments, together with our dynamic approaches to learning, put us at the forefront of global educational practices.
We have been very fortunate to work alongside our architects to design our dream school. Our whole school has been involved - teachers have helped to design the innovative learning spaces; our Aquatics Director, Ivan Bunakov, designed an amazing Aquatics centre with an Olympic-sized pool and state-of-the-art touchpads so our swim squad can get accurate recordings; our Director of Sports, Bevan Moriarty, designed the field and our Head of HPE, Graeme Massey, designed the gym halls.
Our staff know what spaces they need to teach in but also what spaces our children need to thrive in - right down to the spaces they need their parents to support them from. Our Music department collaborated on the recording studios, jam rooms and mixing room so children can work on complete projects. Our Art department has enough space to allow exhibitions, in between the design & technology room, kiln and teaching spaces.
This school has been designed for children, by the people that spend their days working with them.
Nexus is currently taking applications for academic scholarships in August 2021 for the IB Diploma Programme. Successful candidates will benefit from a concession ranging from 25 to 100 percent off their annual school fees.More Information
We have designed and built our new school based on innovative and flexible spaces that enhance a child’s learning experience. We have included exhibition spaces for children to present their work, design & technology rooms to integrate STEAM into lessons.
An Aquatics centre with an Olympic-sized pool, yoga and weight studios and a dedicated shallow pool for younger learners. A FIFA and World rugby specified artificial turf pitch, air-conditioned gyms and fitness suite to keep our learners passionate about sports.
A two tier Auditorium and two Black Box drama suites give learners plenty of opportunities to perform. Music lessons are enhanced with recording studios, a mixing studio and soundproof classrooms. Our learners can enjoy STEAM integrated makerspaces, ceramics and art studios.
Our teachers have designed brilliant innovative learning spaces that can be moved around to enhance the current learning needs. Because teaching is not confined to four walls, we use a wide range of spaces to engage children in their learning.
