Pillar 1

High Quality Teaching and Learning

Nurturing lifelong learners

Better learning outcomes for our students are at the very core of the Limitless Learning Plan. GESS will achieve this by using a data-driven approach to better understand our students. This will allow our experienced educators to truly know each student and more deeply personalise the high-quality teaching, support and extension offered to each individual child.

GESS wants to ensure that our students have the skills and conceptual understanding for life in a workplace that is increasingly automating and evolving. The planned investments in high-quality teaching and learning as well as programme development over the next five years, ensure that GESS meets the needs of each of our students today as well as in the future; fully preparing students for personal success in a rapidly changing world.
