Vision & Values

CO-EDUCATIONAL

Reddam House is a co-educational school that educates students to identify and understand differences between individuals that make up a school and therefore a community. It provides a secure and natural environment for students to learn to relate to the opposite sex, and an opportunity for students to interact whilst comfortably encouraging gender equality.

EACH CHILD IS AN INDIVIDUAL

At Reddam House we recognize that each student is special and unique and our aim is to nurture and develop this uniqueness while simultaneously locating any latent talent and bringing it to the forefront. Students are encouraged to express their individuality, to be comfortable with whom they are and to respect each other for their differences. Our core objective is to provide each child the opportunity to develop his or her full potential.

RAISING THE STANDARD

Reddam House offers a specialized education curriculum geared towards the stronger academic child.

In an average school environment placed together with average achieving children, the above average child will under-achieve, becoming complacent and bored. In the Reddam environment each child is motivated, stimulated and supported to meet our highest academic expectations. Even the average child will rise to the challenge when presented with work that will extend and stimulate.

There is an emphasis on providing the appropriate enrichment tasks for each child that is in need of being extended in various areas or across the board. Tailor-made programmes have been specifically structured to cater for gifted and talented students.

WE TEACH YOUR CHILD TO THINK AND TO QUESTION

Our aim is to promote independent thinkers and encourage young people to use the knowledge they have acquired to develop their own thoughts, ideas and opinions. We support children in their educational endeavors by teaching them how to think, not what to think.

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

Lateral thought, comprehension and inferential skills are honed. Through sound teaching methods, students are exposed to a wide variety of subjects, including information technology, digital media and research skills. Global and local awareness of environmental issues is fostered. Reddam House students also receive tuition in life and communication skills, study methods, time management, and are introduced to entrepreneurship, stock-exchange and banking know-how, drug awareness and eating disorder programmes, subject choice orientation and career counseling.

AN EMPHASIS ON SPORT AND THE CREATIVE ARTS

The areas of Sport and Creative and Performing Arts feature strongly in a Reddam House education. Students are encouraged to participate in these activities on both competitive and non-competitive levels, resulting in a student that is well rounded and not solely focusing on academia.
