Our Mission

Aims and Ethos

Welcome to Lighthouse International School, where we are committed to providing a comprehensive and exceptional education to our students. We hold high expectations for every pupil and strive to create a vibrant and nurturing community where everyone can flourish.

Our primary goal is to ensure the happiness, security, and vitality of our students, as well as the adults within our school. We believe in fostering an environment that is exciting and stimulating, instilling a lifelong love of learning in each and every student. Boredom is simply not an option at Lighthouse!

In addition to academic excellence, we understand the importance of preparing our students for their future beyond the classroom. We focus on their moral and spiritual education, guiding them to become well-rounded individuals who are equipped to navigate the challenges of life. We also encourage the pursuit of individual passions, both within and outside the academic realm, ensuring that each student discovers and nurtures their unique interests.

At Lighthouse International School, we are dedicated to creating a thriving educational experience that goes beyond textbooks and exams. Join us on this exciting journey as we empower our students to become confident, curious, and compassionate individuals who are ready to make a positive impact on the world.

In our pastoral care, we aim to:

  • Create an environment in which every child can be happy and achieve according to his abilities and a safe, secure school in which he is valued and listened to ensure a well but unobtrusively disciplined school, in which every member will respect and celebrate the efforts and abilities of others.
  • Provide a clear moral framework for all members of the school community, based on genuine respect for and understanding of people of all faiths and backgrounds.
  • Create a sense of partnership between teachers and parents through clear information and discussion in order to promote the best interests of each individual child.
  • Give every child the ability to make informed and balanced decisions on important moral, social, cultural, political and environmental issues, and those related to their own and others’ health and well-being.
  • Encourage each child to discover his own aspirations, and to develop his own ambitions and his personal targets in a sustained, determined manner.
  • Share information with other relevant agencies in the best interests of the child when there are concerns of a child welfare nature.

In our classrooms, we aspire to:

  • Foster a vibrant learning community (for adults as well as pupils) in which every member is continually stimulated and challenged not be over-bound by exam requirements, but to encourage learning and knowledge for their own sake.
  • Be open-minded and enthusiastic in our teaching, and encourage our pupils to question as they form and articulate their own ideas build on the children’ intellectual curiosity and stimulate an enjoyment of learning, analysis and scholarship.
  • Have high expectations of our pupils, and applaud their efforts and progress.
  • Foster good working habits and an understanding of the importance of application.
  • Encourage a sense of working together, for example through pair and group work.

In our extra-curricular activities, our objectives are to:

  • Provide a breadth of activity (in fields such as music, sport, drama, pottery, design, ICT and other after-school activities) and a breadth of choice, so that every child can discover and develop their own intellectual, cultural and sporting passions.
  • Offer opportunities for leadership and responsibility in numerous fields, especially for our older pupils.
  • Build confidence and self-respect through trying new activities and exploring hidden and unknown talents.
  • Encourage every child to shine in as many areas as possible.
