Halcyon seeks to create a student body that is characterized by the diversity of nationality, ethnic background, education and life experience. This better positions the school to provide a life-readying educational experience that promotes a balanced social and learning community. Halcyon aims to admit suitably qualified students whose families want their children to be educated in a school community that represents our multicultural world. Students will have the aptitude to succeed in a rigorous academic environment while developing the necessary skills and competencies to be active, compassionate learners, and engaged global citizens. The school’s admissions policy is to conduct its admissions on a fair and non-discriminatory basis, adhering to the admissions criteria.
Our community is united by a common goal of developing the attitudes and interpersonal skills required for successful International Baccalaureate learners worldwide – who are collaborative, internationally-minded and able to engage meaningfully in independent inquiry. The programme aims to develop caring people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.*
In addition, Halcyon’s “Beyond the IB” approach reflects our belief in an education that exposes students to learning experiences that support students to achieve beyond academic attainment. Halcyon families value these key elements of a Halcyon education including our focus on student wellbeing, student agency and voice, digital integration, independent and collaborative project work, etc. The school continually seeks to improve accessibility (see below in relation to special educational needs and physical disabilities).Admissions Policy
