To foster the development of robust independent learning skills, engender curiosity and promote learning skills through an inquiry-based approach.

Skills and Knowledge - To support Athena’s aims, the 6 ‘C’ approach will be adopted


Creativity comes from analytical thought and reflection, and from thinking innovatively.


Students are encouraged to: collaborate closely with peers and all members of the community; express their own and accept others’ views; question and be questioned.


Students are encouraged to express their thoughts with confidence, acquire effective listening skills and develop strong empathetic skills.


Each student is encouraged make a positive contribution to all situations. In addition, students actively contribute to the wider society through the sharing of their knowledge, skills and values.


We encourage every student to belong to, be an active member of, and uphold the values developed in their family home, while respecting the values of others.


The world is ever-changing, and the speed of change is becoming faster by the day. We seek to equip our students with the skills to fulfil future jobs yet to be created.
