Secondary School of Commerce is listening to its students more than ever before. This has had a direct impact in the design of our curriculum, tutorial system and the continued improvements in the quality of our teaching and learning.
We are especially proud of our achievements in supporting students with particular learning needs. Our tutorial system is outstanding. We have designated teachers to advise and support students on specific issues. A tutor’s role is as the intermediary between the student and the school. A tutor keeps an eye on the student’s academic progress, is available to advise and support the student if he comes up against personal difficulties of any kind. Students must see their tutor at least once a week. The tutors and the teachers hold regular weekly meetings, together with the school counselor to discuss welfare issues.
At our school we are not only interested in helping our students achieve good results, but also in helping them to develop as a person, to find their own way and to realize their potential.
We look forward to meeting you.
