Curro Thatchfield practises a system of 'invitational education' in which learners are seen as able, valuable and responsible. Our ethos is governed by Christian values where learners are encouraged to explore and express their individuality within acceptable boundaries and ultimately take responsibility for their actions.
We guide learners to follow their hearts and develop into the best people they can be. Our broad curriculum covers problem-solving, creative thinking and the development of skills and values. Both individual and group work is evaluated. Learners are prepared for the matriculation examinations set by the Independent Examinations Board (IEB).
