Terra Nova School’s motto is Labor et Ludus which translates as Work and Play.

The school’s vision is to create a forward-thinking internationally-minded environment that allows everyone to grow, explore, thrive and question.

Underpinning the school’s vision are the Guiding Principles by which our community strives to live

  • First and foremost, in every decision we make, students come first

  • All members of our community are encouraged to have a Growth Mindset

  • Success is not a given; it is down to hard work and effort – we thrive on challenge

  • We each have a role to play in the world in which we live

  • We respect the right to be an individual. Diversity is a strength

  • We have an obligation to appreciate our education

  • We have high expectations of each other

  • Reflection allows us to continually move forward; standing still is not an option

The School is justifiably proud of its highly successful past but will also be dynamic and forward-looking. It will produce outstanding characters equipped for the challenges of their future education. Children at Terra Nova School will have a clear sense of where they are, where they would like to go, and how they are going to get there

At Terra Nova we hold our schools values highly. All of our students are;

  • Kind

  • Resilient 

  • Confident 

  • Disciplined 

  • Open minded
