 Learning Policy

The foundation of our learning policy is a student centred approach throughout the curriculum, facilitated by a commitment to class sizes as close as possible to twenty students.

Central to this policy is our encouragement of autonomous learning and of empathy with others working in the same classroom.

Challenge and support are available to every student through high expectations of every student, the use of team teaching, in-class support, careful differentiation and a planned balance of individual work, group work and whole-class teaching.

In year 8, students work in all-ability groups, and all students study the full curriculum. In subsequent years all students study the full curriculum and are set for some subjects as appropriate, leading on to the tiered entry to Key Stage 3 assessments, GCSE, AS and A2 Levels.
