We seek to foster a lifelong love of learning in our boys through a high quality and supportive learning experience. Whilst providing every opportunity for boys to attain the best possible outcomes in public examinations, we accept that there are many more ways to measure an educational experience than just grades. Lessons are conducted in a stimulating, supportive and happy learning environment, making use of custom-designed facilities to connect with each and every learner. We look to both support and develop each boy through a well established Support for Learning infrastructure as well as a committed, enthusiastic and well-qualified staff team.
A 'can do' spirit is fostered in all subjects. Boys are encouraged to ask questions, challenge conventions and existing theories, and to seek out the answers to problems. Up-to-date educational practice in engaging and inspiring boys is adopted, including thinking skills and assessment for learning, so that the educational provision is tailored to our boys. Independent learning is a key focus, so that boys can not only record and recall information, but look to extend it outside of the classroom and in their own time. Independent learning projects and cross-curricular activities are a feature of the curricular programme.
Boys like to get fully involved with their learning and a tangible and practical classroom experience is integral to our model. It is through an engaging and inclusive learning ethos that our boys often surprise themselves at how much they can achieve.
