Learning

PYP (K- 5)

MYP (6-10)

DP (11 & 12)

At Stratford Hall, your child will be given the opportunity to learn and to thrive; to discover their unique strengths, and to explore the diverse opportunities our rapidly changing would can offer. Under the care and guidance of Stratford Hall staff, they will grow and mature, while equipping themselves with intellectual tools, strength of character, and a global perspective.

You may ask, "why are the classrooms walled in glass?" This is because we deliberately break down the boundaries between subjects and grades. There is no insularity at Stratford Hall; the only 'Pomp and Circumstance' is at graduation.
