What we believe

 

We believe that learning is a journey of exploration, a collaboration between learner and teacher,  inspired by curiosity,

guided by professional insight and commitment, grounded in community values

and focused on the natural development of each child’s potential.

At Broadacres Academy we live by the beliefs outlined in our manifesto. We strive to take children on a journey where their love for learning never diminishes.

We nurture life-long learners through exploration and discovery, allowing children to enhance their full potential. We are creating a unique learning environment where the partnership between child and teacher ensures a well-rounded individual, whose natural curiosity drives his or her learning.

Broadacres Academy is a private independent school, set in a relaxed rural environment, which ensures a happy child who can appreciate nature and learn without fear. Our classes are small and intimate and children are encouraged to actively participate in their education by exploring and discovering the world around them.

Professional teachers guide and facilitate the learning process in a collaborative way which ensures a solid grounding, development of all the necessary skills and a continual love of learning.  Children enjoy individual and personalised attention from qualified and committed teachers.

We also have a Tutor Centre for registered homeschoolers where we welcome all students who have the desire to learn in a way that standardised schools are not always able to accommodate. The Broadacres Academy Tutor Centre is located in the original farmhouse on our property.

We strive to uphold the values of our community and instil in children the importance of moral and ethical values of kindness, integrity, empathy, courtesy, love for their environment and compassion.

We involve the children in community life as much as possible and teach them to be responsible members or society as well as being able to appreciate the value of taking care of their society in a meaningful way.

“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity,
he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.” -Clay Bedford
