Broadhurst embraces a dynamic, interactive environment allowing children to develop their individual skills. The School has a highly qualified, diverse Teaching staff that delivers unique core teaching methodologies, which focus on cultivating each child’s needs, thereby preparing them for the future.  The implementation of the following Thinking Tools takes place throughout the curriculum:  Dr. De Bono’s CoRT1 Thinking Tools and Six Thinking Hats, Dr. Costa’s Habits of Mind, Dr. Hyerle’s Thinking Maps, Buzan Mind Mapping and a Problem Solving approach to Mathematics.
