The personalised approach and small class sizes mean that teachers will understand and know your son as an individual, ensuring he is challenged or supported at the appropriate level.
As a broad ability school, we differentiate our work in class for the individual so that everyone is given the chance to fulfil their potential and succeed. By building confidence in our boys, by encouraging and nurturing them, and by reassuring them that making mistakes is part of a learning pattern, we aim to grow a sense of resilience in them and in how they approach every task. Through a range of activities and teaching methods which include exploratory and investigative problem solving, peer teaching and learning, questioning and the breaking down of academic concepts into appropriate and manageable parts, we are able to support and extend all abilities both in and out of the classroom.
LEARNING DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT
The Learning Development Department (LDD) aims to support boys with specific difficulties. Staff liaise with the SENCO and parents to ensure that the individual needs of pupils are met either within the classroom or on a withdrawal basis. If a boy requires 1:1 support, parents are advised of the programme to be followed, how much time will be given and the cost entailed.
Extremely positive relationships amongst pupils and a strong rapport between pupils and staff, as well as high levels of motivation and behaviour in the classroom, all serve to enhance effective learning and support overall achievement.
