Our school team is both creative and committed, and can be trusted to come up with engaging, relevant and enticing approaches to learning that are responsive to children’s interests.

A school's culture is built by the people who are part of it. In our community we care about our children, and nurture them as individuals. We welcome difference and celebrate diversity. Alexandra School isn't just a launchpad for learning. It is an ideas factory, a good-food café, an art studio, a theatre, a place to play and a place to learn about ourselves and each other.
Our teaching teams are passionate about learning. They want to offer an irresistible invitation to learn that will enable every child to achieve, and believe that children should feel secure, nurtured, listened to and happy. They believe learning should be fun. We work hard: we play hard. We are open ten hours a day.Our Breakfast and After-School Club crew keep things buzzing before, during and after school hours. It is AXI's way of helping our families, and keeping bright, innovative experiences flowing for our children.
At AXI, pursuit of individuals’ beliefs and cultures are encouraged and celebrated. All members of our community are given the opportunity to be involved, to innovate and to participate in our sense of community and camaraderie. In our world, everyone can make a difference.
