Our staff work as a team to maintain a challenging, fun, and safe learning environment. As an independent school, we are able to cater to the needs of each individual student. We are not restricted by a “franchise policy” or cookie-cutter curriculum. Each class’ syllabus is developed by its head teacher and the school’s director. We are extremely proud of the environment we have created.

- We have an exceptionally low turnover; the average tenure at Camelot is 8 years.
