As teachers/educators, our fundamental commitment is to our students and their pursuit of meaningful and successful lives and careers. We believe that providing a high standard of education alone, is not conducive to our goal. It has to go beyond the classroom scenario.

At Verney College, our commitment is to be open minded, accept and respect every student’s individuality and encourage them to become self confident and determined to succeed in all aspects of life. We have embraced the philosophy of forging and developing friendships with our pupils, creating a bond with them which will enable us to assess their personalities, their weaknesses and their strengths, and to create a new generation where respect, compassion, tolerance and determination to succeed become priorities in their lives – present and future!

Regardless of I.Q , we believe that a well developed and balanced E.Q ( Emotional intelligence) will enable our students to succeed. It is important  that our students feel comfortable, self confident and ready to face the future.

Academic Excellence can only be achieved once these principles have been instilled in our students.
