Ethos of Hebron School
Hebron School is a co-educational residential school which exists to provide an affordable international education (drawn from a British tradition) based on sound Christian principles for children aged from pre-school to university entrance. It seeks to provide schooling for Christian worker children in Asia, Africa and the Gulf Region in addition to others who require an international education.
Hebron School offers the English National Curriculum, culminating in the GCSE, IGCSE and GCE AS/A2 examinations. Recognising the value of each individual in the community and believing that the best foundation for life is a personal relationship with Christ, our aims are:
- To provide excellent educational opportunities through a strong academic curriculum and a wide range of extra-curricular activities;
- To provide a personalized, caring, family-based environment;
- To encourage students tostrive for excellence and to develop to their full potential in all areas of their lives;
- To challenge students to work out the focus and direction of their lives in preparation for life after school;
- To foster a genuine respect for others and to inspire the school community to live in the service of God and others;
- To serve the neighbourhood and wider community;
- To provide a resource for Christian workers in Asia, and business communities requiring an international education for their children.
The school is committed to its motto, ‘Deo Supremo’ (God First).
We are determined to continue emphasising the foundational values on which the school was built: to provide a Christian, family, atmosphere and open to children from all backgrounds and a broad ability range. As a school, our aim is to educate our students so that they have a considered and balanced world-view. A vital part of this is an understanding of the teachings of Christ as revealed in the Bible, with their implications for individual and community life. We regard every student as a valued person whose mind, body and spirit all need nurturing within a loving and caring environment. Our desire is that such an environment would challenge the students to work out the focus and direction of their lives and prepare them for life after school within the international community.
Our main focus is the care and education of children of Christian Workers in Asia and Africa, and we welcome other families, too, and treat their children equally, fairly and sensitively. Hebron aims to be a wholistic school where we aim to train the whole person – physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.
