STEM-focused learning

The world of work prizes two fundamental skill sets above all others: mathematical problem solving together with high social competence. This school aims to focus specifically on producing boys who stand out in these two areas.

Hamilton House places a high premium on technology in education with a unique focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. A particular emphasis is placed on sustainable living. Boys are provided with numerous opportunities to job shadow in relevant work environments.

Beyond the Classroom

Education is undergoing a radical transformation at the moment. It no longer needs to be confined to the four walls of the classroom. It can take place anywhere provided the learner has the right guidance and is connected to the world via the Internet. Hamilton House aims to move into this space. We will provide the teachers, the classrooms and the laboratories but not be confined by them. Our boys will become independent learners, entrepreneurial thinkers and progress at a pace that suits their individual needs.

Fascination with how the World works

Schools can play an enormous role in shaping perspective. We believe that young people are inherently positive and enthusiastic, and their optimism should be exploited. We are not a school that desires to be all things to all people. We aim to provide an education that caters for a very unique subset of the general population. Boys who have a particular fascination with how the world works and how they can play a positive role in some of its complexities.
