“My school provides students with many opportunities to grow. I’ve been in the school for quite a long time now, and our learning journey has consistently been challenge-based to inculcate the curiosity mindset in all students. Pristine gives its students a vision and guides them to pursue it at every step especially at the last stage of our school life preparing us for our future.” – Reena Riczie – AS Level student AY 20-21
The knowledge and skills gained through our AS & A Level programmes as well as the diverse and inclusive community that our students become a part of enables them to be future ready with a global perspective. Students gain in house experience of leading on the organisation of prestigious platforms such as TEDx@PristinePrivateSchool (link to TEDx images & links) and Pristine Model United Nations (PRISMUN). These experiences not only allow them to collaborate and communicate with the wider community with increasing expertise, but open doors for them through the enrichment of their university application portfolios.
At Pristine, Post 16 students have access to a highly personalised course offering them a unique choice of subjects to cater to the variety of career options available today.
