Teaching And Learning
A college that inspires lifelong learning
We are passionate about learning, and we believe it is both what you learn and how you learn that matters, which means our students not only have the knowledge required to be successful now but have honed their own approach to being a successful learner, that will last a lifetime.
Students are supported through our Learning to Learn programmes that are bespoke to each key stage and ensure our students take ownership of their learning, instilling a sense of independence and diligence they can take with them into their future careers.
We believe in personalising the learning process and our bespoke tracking system enables us to monitor student progress every half term, intervening and providing tailored support for individual students while at the same time recognising and praising those making progress and achieving success. We share this information with parents as we believe that by working together, we can better develop students who are self-motivated, aspirant, and successful.
We not only invest in our students, but ensure our teachers’ Continued Professional development is central to our goal of supporting students to achieve their potential and excel. We encourage our teachers to be highly reflective professionals and teaching and learning is driven by our Teaching and Learning Development Team.
We are committed to raising standards and our curriculum at KS3 is broad, knowledge rich and designed to provide a foundation for all students to pursue their desired careers. We believe that all students can thrive given the opportunity to study suitable courses. We meet the needs of all our students by offering four distinct pathways that include opportunities to study subjects as broad as Further Mathematics and English Literature in our academic pathway and Construction and Early Years Learning, Care and Development in our Vocational pathway. Ultimately, our desire is to see our students excel in their careers and in life.
