At APSS we view personal development as much a part of our curriculum as academic excellence. We recognise that attitudes, self-awareness, and level of self-confidence and life skills that our students take out into the world with them are just as important in helping them to truly succeed in life and be happy as their academic knowledge and qualifications gained whilst at APSS.
Personal development is encouraged and enabled at APSS through excellent pastoral care which nurture close teacher-student relationship. There is a strong moral element to the students’ social development which is supported by charity work, field trips and international exchange programmes to further broaden their experience of the global environment.
The students are also supported by Professional Counselors who are readily accessible to advise on career choices, study techniques and a listening ear when needed.
