Our STEAM & Project-based Learning Curriculum
To be successful requires a different way of thinking. Fortunately, these skills can be learned. The key skills for tomorrow’s jobs, the 4C’s – Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity – are abilities that can be learned and practised just like reading and writing. “Project-based learning”, where students “learn by doing”, is the most effective way to develop these skills. It is a hallmark of Regent’s Secondary pedagogy and is what makes us so completely unique as a school.
Our Secondary School provides a strong foundation in the core subjects of English, Maths and the Sciences interwoven with the Liberal Arts and Humanities, with an additional emphasis on STEAM and “Project-based Learning” that will create tomorrow’s leaders, thinkers and inventors. Secondary School offers innovative design technology labs that mirror startup work environments to inspire students to learn and develop skills applicable to the real world.
Through our STEAM and Project-based programme, students design and fabricate steel, wood and acrylic prototypes plus mechanical, electrical, and control systems while creating autonomous programming. Students also learn deep coding and programming skills. Critical thinking, teamwork and project management are integrated throughout the STEAM concentration.
Rather than being siloed into English or Chemistry class, students work in large labs where they apply knowledge and skills from across all subjects of the curriculum. The lab mimics the workplace with equipment for computing, design technology, art, music and science. This after all how people work in the real world.
Students work on real-world problems such as, for example, designing an artificially intelligent shoe for disabled people. Students will break up into groups some working on figuring out the best thermodynamics of the shoe using Physics; other students will work on ascertaining the most resilient materials using what they have learned in Chemistry; others will write the website content and brochures to market the shoe using their English skills; the coders will code the website front-end and back-end database and put up a Shopify or Magento e-shop to sell the shoe on the net honing their computer science skills; and other students will draw up a business plan with cashflows, test marketing the product on YouTube, crowd-sourcing the funding of manufacture of the shoe on Kickstarter; and finally the group of students will compete in Regent’s annual Shark Tank entrepreneurship competition presenting their project to Regent’s judges to win some funding from the school.
Regent is an outstanding school
and provides an outstanding quality of education for pupils from three to 11 years
Very strong Curriculum with rich learning opportunities
that has an impact on the child's progress.
We learn to sing and to use our voices, to create and compose music.
We even have the opportunity to learn how to play different musical instruments. Our music teachers are very talented. They even taught some of us how to floss.
With an amazing senior leadership team and experienced educators,
a Regent education is interactive and collaborative – they truly make primary school a memorable experience.
My school feels like home.
I love coming to school every day.
Possibilities seem infinite at Regent.
There are no limits in my child’s imagination about what he can do. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.
The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study,
it’s a great place to socialise and make new friends.
Regent has given my daughter a new start.
This school has encouraged her to gain confidence and to express herself despite mistakes. The teachers are always available to help and laugh with her.
