Shaping my World

Our distinctive vision – guiding our students to be ready for the world

Prep School – Shaping My World

When children move into Year 3, they join the Prep School where they start to shape their world. They learn to take responsibility for their decisions, reflect on their actions and build resilience. Passions are discovered and talents realised whilst knowledge and skills are developed. Learning comes to life as they relate and apply their learning to real life situations.

As children move further up the school, we prepare them for the challenges they may face as they find their way in the world. In preparation for transition to Senior School, they have opportunities to experience Senior School life. Year 7 and 8 also have a taste of the Life Skills programme in a ‘Shaping my World’ day. 

Senior School – The World Ready Journey                                               

Once they reach the Senior School, our aim is that students gain insight, empathy and skills to live fulfilling adult lives. We encourage them to be global citizens, illustrating active engagement with global issues. They are equipped with entrepreneurship, self-reliance, initiative and collaboration. Our programme through the Senior School and Sixth Form prepares students to be World Ready in a number of ways.

Schools are places of discovery as well as education. We help students find their special aptitudes and talents and help them flourish. Students engage with the world around them with the practical application of knowledge from people in other communities and workplaces. Ardingly College students become young adults ready for life and the challenges of an inter-connected world.
