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
