Eden School has developed a holistic approach to learning by cultivating each child’s potential for spiritual, physical and mental activity. We follow the National Curriculum with the Bible as our foundation. Our fervent aim is to prepare our students for eternal life, presenting themes pertaining to the Plan of Redemption. We accentuate these themes at differentiated levels of learning, using practical tasks, spiritual lessons and academic activities and thereby Educating our students for Eternity. Ofsted have rated the quality of our students’ spiritual development as ‘outstanding’.
The school’s education philosophy and practices are founded on Seventh-day Adventist educational principles. It delivers a curriculum programme that provides for the complete development of every pupil under its charge. At the heart of this curriculum are two central beliefs. The first is that human beings were created and fashioned in the image of God, which makes us very important and special in every respect. This truth, when accepted, is a shield against low self-esteem and poor self- image, which are destructive forces to children’s development and a hindrance to them realizing their full potential. The second is that all wisdom, knowledge and learning are derived from God. Thus, these two cardinal principles are the motivation for the school’s commitment to the goal of spiritual, academic, social and physical excellence for all pupils.
“I believe that my unique and creative style of leadership was the deciding factor in becoming a Teaching Award winner. I am also committed to practical education, green education and educating children for life by developing respect, courtesy, independent thinking, creativity, community values and an ethos of care and love for nature.
I strive to instill these values in my teachers, mentors/mentees and students which lead to successful, confident, purposeful young men and women who value their society and share their talents and skills with their community. My focus on the creative arts especially drama, dance, music, art and design and design technology as a vehicle for raising achievement in the academic subjects is a major attribute to our school’s success.”
– Mrs Laura Osei – Principal
