The curriculum at SANVEE aims to develop critical and creative thinking, as well as self-discipline. We encourage our students to find their own strengths and preferred methods of learning within a structured and supportive framework. Small classes of around 15 enable teachers to give the attention each student needs. In addition, the tutorial system at SANVEE ensures that each pupil’s progress is continuously monitored, in terms of effort and achievement, with regular communication between tutor, pupil and parent.
