Learning to learn

The curriculum is constantly evolving to ensure that we help students learn in a way that prepares them for tomorrow’s world. It is designed to provide students with a strong foundation for learning through programmes that are engaging and authentic, allowing learners to achieve academic excellence and a life long love of learning.

The Year 7-10 team are working with our students so they can become more effective learners. One hour every week the students have the opportunity to go and focus on a learning skill that they feel they need to work on. After 10 weeks the students can then either re:engage in the same learning skill or choose another.
