What the school says...

What sets Cameron Vale apart from other schools is our distinctive family atmosphere and nurturing ethos which celebrates the individual and strives to unlock each child’s true potential. Driven by the belief that a ‘one size fits all’ approach is limiting and supported by our small class sizes which allow each child to shine, we are able to ensure children are known for who they are and develop their own gifts and talents; whether it be excelling in the classroom, on the sports field or the stage.
