Welcome from the Headmaster
Our world is changing fast, and today’s children will now be competing in their adult lives with artificial intelligence, as well as with bright, able and well-educated people from other countries and cultures. What we have traditionally regarded as essential knowledge is being augmented by the requirement for life skills, thinking skills, creative skills and people skills, all of which are becoming ever more important.
In 2007, Aberdour developed PAL, providing a truly individualised education with breadth and flexibility. We have supported PAL with major investments in our staff, our systems, our buildings, our IT and our resources, and the combination of a child-focused education. Genuinely innovative teaching has made a real difference to the children’s skills, achievements and enjoyment of life.
Our 2020 Vision is a clear view as to how we can give your children even more of the skills that will equip them to make the most of their senior schools and their adult lives. It is also a clear view of how we can continue to do things that other schools are not offering. In short, creativity, aspirational development and technology will be embedded with challenge, opportunity and exciting teaching, along with nurturing care, encouragement and personalisation for each child. Our 2020 Vision addresses the opportunities of the future, rather than those of the past.
Education should be exciting and fun, and we believe that our 2020 Vision will make life at Aberdour even more exciting and even more fun. We hope you will agree!
