Developing independent thinkers and life-long learners
Stanford Lake College prides itself on developing independent thinkers who will have the cognitive skills to access life-long learning. In grades 8 and 9, the academic programme is delivered within the Round Square Discovery Framework where the focus is on teaching skills rather than content alone. The learners are exposed to a number of critical thinking programmes such as the De Bono Thinking Hats, the Thinking Maps and Growth Mindset which prioritises a Growth Mindset outlook on learning. Stanford Lake College is a Thinking Skills South Africa affiliated school. We take great pride in developing young learners beyond the school curriculum.
Stanford Lake College prepares learners for the university entrance examinations of the Independent Examinations Board (IEB). This examination allows learners entry into local and international institutions of higher learning.
