Who We Are

We need to completely reimagine education

If the current climate has taught us anything, it is that change is constant, and what works well today may become obsolete tomorrow. In the same way, technological advancements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution have made the traditional approach to education irrelevant. As the world continues to change, it is crucial for the learning environment students find themselves in to change along with it.

Like so many educators, parents, and leaders, we have seen how the current education system is failing our youth. As a system that was developed for a completely different time, it has failed to adapt to the environment students find themselves in right now. Timothy House’s heart and passion is to prove that we can do better.

Timothy House is a private school where educators, parents, staff, and students work together with mutual trust and towards common objectives. It is our response to a failing approach to education, offering a sanctuary for students to learn effectively, adapt quickly, and grow into the next generation of thought-leaders and entrepreneurial innovators.

We are a team of individuals who believe that there is so much more to your child than what traditional schools bring out of them. Our goal is to provide a space where students have the freedom to explore all aspects of their potential and where we nurture a culture of collaboration, new ideas, and independent thinking.

“I never teach my pupils; I only provide the conditions in which they can learn.”

Marlon Bird

Director

"The Head Boy"

All head boys seem to be involved in so many school activities that we wonder when they get a chance to sleep. Leading the way at Timothy House, while simultaneously running his own tutoring academy and mentoring teenagers as a youth pastor, we often wonder the same about Marlon.

But, like all great leaders, Marlon thrives when serving people. His passion for education and seeing young people grow into their full potential is how Timothy House was born and how it will continue to grow.
