Teaching and learning

We aim for the very best in classroom education, enabling all pupils to achieve success and gain valuable knowledge and skills.

A wide range of techniques – tailored to meet the needs of all pupils – are used in lessons.

In every lesson we expect:

  • To stretch, challenge and support our pupils
  • To inspire interest and curiosity
  • To develop reading, writing, and mathematical skills
  • To provide opportunities to work in groups as well as developing independence and resilience
  • To build confidence and encourage pupils to take responsibility
  • Pupils to push themselves to make the best progress

Our teaching is well regarded within the profession, and we are a specialist centre for the training of maths, physics, and modern foreign languages teachers.

We work with our fellow schools within the Inspiration Trust to apply innovative teaching approaches and deliver a thorough, modern curriculum.
