Welcome from Head of School

Claire Charlemagne BA Hons, MSc, NPQH
Head of School

There has never been a more exciting time to be involved in education. The highly competitive nature of the modern world means that the preparation we afford to our children for its demands is more important than ever. Here at Saltus we pride ourselves on the all-round development of the children we are proud to call our students. We seek to develop the unique talents, self- confidence and maturity of all our students while providing a family community in which each member is known and valued. We pride ourselves on the richness and diversity of the Saltus experience as well as the friendly atmosphere within our community. We strive to ensure that Saltus alumni will look back on their school days with genuine affection.

The vibrant Saltus community is passionate about learning. Our mission statement guides our day to day operations and strategic development and is built upon three pillars: academic excellence, personal integrity and service to others. Our commitment to these principles is evident in campus life each day.  We have a tradition of high academic expectation, nurtured by a culture which values achievement in all activities and supports fully the development of each student to achieve success, gain self-confidence and be equipped as independent learners, ready to take their place as responsible 21st century citizens.

We are currently celebrating our 127th year, an opportunity to reflect on our rich heritage and look towards the future.  Established in 1888 as a school for boys, the school has developed both in size and prestige. Today we are a thriving co-educational community, celebrated for our academic excellence, our significant contribution to the local and international community, and the vast range of extra-curricular opportunities we provide for our students. Above all, we pride ourselves on attaining the highest standards in all that we do; promoted through personal care and encouragement and achieved through respect for tradition and openness to innovation.

Saltus is built on strong traditions and has an exciting future as we prepare our students to meet the challenges of the 21st century with confidence. We pride ourselves on being a leader in education in Bermuda and in continually embracing innovation to enhance the learning experience we offer. We move with the times whilst maintaining the important traditions of good manners, personal integrity and service to others. Our students are the leaders of the future; in the professions and as leaders of the community, both here in Bermuda and far beyond her shores.

This website offers a flavour of the balance which we seek to achieve between hard work, personal responsibility and enjoyment. I hope that you will want to share in our success and become part of our vibrant Saltus community. The best way of finding out what Saltus has to offer is to visit us and take a tour with one of our student leaders. I very much look forward to meeting you.
