At Tynwald High, we believe that education lays the foundation for life and should be a hugely positive, rich experience for all children. This dovetails with our mantra “Every child matters.” Our school offers a broad and balanced curriculum a happy, safe and supportive atmosphere, with a strong commitment to helping all learners succeed regardless of their background or abilities. We strive to enable our learners to develop socially and emotionally so that they take pride in their learning and want to do well. We believe in offering a curriculum that is purposeful, relevant, challenging and engaging. This again resonates with our mantra.
Tynwald high is a not-for-profit trust school. We are a Cambridge International School and are authorised to offer Checkpoint, IGCSE, GCE, “O”, “AS” and “A” Level.
Through a range of interactive teaching strategies in the classroom all learners are motivated to achieve high academic standards. Learning environments are structured to develop problem solving abilities and a range of transferable skills. The use of technology is an integral part of classroom practice, allowing all learners to meet the demands of today’s digitally driven society.
While academic excellence is an important goal, we also value the development of the child as a whole. Social skills, self evaluation and the raising of self-esteem are fundamental to good classroom practice. We believe that learners learn best when they are happy, valued and feel respected as individuals. We encourage all students to take an active part in an inquiring based learning process, to set goals, to be independent learners and to self-evaluate their progress. We also believe that effective takes place when learners get their hands dirty.
