The Arbor School programme goes beyond conventional education, blending the rigour of a British Curriculum with our unique environmental ethos. At Arbor, we believe in a mission that sets us apart, guiding us toward a future where every individual may thrive. Our mission statement encapsulates the very essence of our educational philosophy: More than what might traditionally be considered a school; we are a community that fosters a profound connection with the natural world. Our commitment is to build a unique learning community with the passion to work together to imagine and build the future we want – a future of abundance. Students will leave Arbor not only with a portfolio of academic accomplishments, but also achievements in their areas of passion, and an innate sense of purpose as they move on into an unknown and complex future. This not only develops people of character but also ensures our students have an incredibly competitive portfolio, featuring skills sought after by university admissions and recruiters alike. We truly believe that providing students with ‘boundless opportunities’ through our purpose driven programme, allows students to thrive and excel. We want our students understand the importance of their education in achieving their goals, and to be inspired to make a positive impact on the world. Our commitment to personalised pathways means that we recognise and embrace the uniqueness of each student. We believe that every individual has their own distinct strengths, interests, and aspirations. Therefore, we ensure each student has individual care and attention, and tailor our educational approach to meet the specific needs of each student, helping them discover their purpose and passion in life. Our school is not just a place of learning; it is a family community that cares deeply for every student. We pride ourselves on providing individualised care, ensuring that each student feels supported, valued, and empowered to succeed. We believe that this environment fosters a sense of belonging and encourages passionate curiosity, inspiring students to explore their interests and question the world around them. We believe that the world needs leaders who not only excel academically but also demonstrate integrity and empathy, becoming ethical thinkers. This ensures Arborists are people who: Think deeply Embody kindness Act Consciously Welcome to Arbor School, where our student’s future begins with a mission to make the world a better place for all: a world where there is “enough for all, forever”.

Ignite Scholarship Programme (Years 7 – 13):

The Arbor School’s Ignite Scholars programme is an avenue to pursue and embed a culture whereby students demonstrating academic excellence may be recruited, rewarded, and retained through a scholarship programme. The value of a scholarship is up to 75% of annual fees. Scholarships are for fixed periods of time (usually 2 years in duration) and will be awarded to students demonstrating the potential to achieve to the highest levels. Selected candidates will demonstrate outstanding prior achievement or academic capacity in one or more subject area. Additional demonstrable levels of excellence may be taken into consideration, including excellence in sports, arts or culture; however academic achievement is the deciding factor when considering applicants for the Arbor Scholarship programme.
