Principal’s Letter

               I am proud to welcome you to Excel Global School where we are delivering international standards of education to the rural communities of Tamil Nadu. We follow a holistic approach to education here at EGS inspired by the methods of Cambridge University. The research based curricular approach developed by the schools own research team is designed to bring out the very best in our students, both academically and socially.

               The Cambridge approach to schooling and assessment is rapidly becoming the most popular and effective international teaching practice in the world today. We combine the Cambridge system with our own multi dimensional learning approach in order to give our students the varied, challenging and stimulating education that they deserve. The theory of these approaches are delivered in practice by means of a trinity method of application that is focussed upon developing the ‘Academic’, ‘Artistic’ and ‘Athletic’ qualities of the students.

               These ‘Three A’s’ provide an amicable combination of knowledge and life skills tailored to the individual needs of each student. While the ‘Academic’ focus will always be at the forefront of our work at the school, students can’t fulfil their potential on academic focus alone. Students’ creative and physical skills also need to be nurtured to give them a release from the pressures of academic pursuits. Only by encouraging the ‘Artistic’ and ‘Athletic’ qualities can we equip our students with the creative and dynamic thinking skills that will ensure their ‘Academic’ success here at EGS and beyond into whatever higher education and profession they wish to pursue.

               We advocate a ‘No One Left Behind’ policy at EGS. Students who struggle in certain subject areas are given extra support to help prevent them from slipping behind. We liaise with parents regularly to keep them informed on their child’s progress. Family and community remain at the core of EGS’s, only by maintaining a good working relationship with our students’ parents can we truly show our students how to realise their potential.
