Personal Learning

Step beyond the traditional primary school model and get empowered
through a community of curious, happy and capable lifelong learners.

Learnlife is not just a school - we are a community that prepares and empowers children and lifelong learners through personal learning to thrive in the world of the future.

Our personal learning programmes, based on years of research and best practices of top educators from around the globe, guide learners through an individual journey of exploring their passions, skills, and needs.

Primary Years at Learnlife are full-time programmes for young people aged 6 to 11 who are passionate about learning and wish to engage in a lifelong process of self-discovery and contribution to a better world. We welcome all learners who are committed to this vision, including those who have learning differences.

Dedicated and passionate learning guides support learners to push their limits! Learning here is cool, fun, challenging and it becomes an integral part of your life!

“Sunday nights used to be a terrible time for the family because the kids dreaded starting another week of school the next day. Now they're actually excited to get back to it. Just after the first week or two we noticed a big difference in both kids, which I would describe as self-confidence that comes from being treated with respect.”
