Outstanding Faculty

We recognise that the quality of the faculty is a key requirement in achieving academic excellence.

Our old boys excelled in large part due to the committed teachers they had. GCU teachers have been chosen not only for their qualifications and experience but also for their commitment.

Our teachers have the enthusiasm to engage and nurture young boys and the skills to develop them into confident, well-rounded young men.

Our commitment to maintaining teaching quality has led us to institute a robust teacher evaluation system while teaching skills will be regularly refined through regular refresher courses.
