What makes us unique?

Why FPS?

At FirstPoint School we believe that a child’s education is more than simply developing academic excellence. We see it as essential that we develop the ‘whole child’ at FPS, which is why we encourage our students to be active participants in their own learning. We aim to ensure that all FPS students leave school with the knowledge, skills and experience they need to thrive in our ever-changing world.

We place significant emphasis on our students’ personal development, ensuring that wellbeing is a cornerstone of learning and is embedded into our curriculum planning. This enables our students to not only develop their knowledge of key curriculum choices but also allows them to develop lifelong learning skills, such as empathy, collaboration, and leadership, which will have a significant impact on their future goals and on their life beyond FPS.

As a school we take great pride in the innovative education we offer, as students are provided with opportunities to engage with emerging technologies within the curriculum. Our innovative ways of teaching, inspire learning in our students, develops their curiosity, and prepares them well for the technology-focused world that we live in.

It is important for all schools to understand that every child is unique and learns in their own way. FPS provides personalised learning opportunities for all our students, so that they can learn in a way that is tailored to their individual learning needs. 

Our truly exceptional staff ensure that all our students are able to maximise their potential and ensure that the future opportunities available for them are endless, and provide them with an exciting, inspiring and invigorating life once they leave us.
