Mastering Learning

Our Mastering Learning programme equips students with the skills and behaviours they need to be successful, life-long learners.

Students of all year groups participate in this programme on a half-termly basis during PSHCE.

Year 11 students receive additional support during Monday period 6 sessions, targeted on exam skills.

Beneath the surface of any successful learner, sits a set of learned and honed behaviours that allows them to maximise learning opportunities. These include:

  • Excellent attendance to school and punctuality to timetabled sessions
  • Managing time effectively, homework as an example
  • Preparing effectively for assessments
  • Being aware of the pitfalls (and advantages) posed by modern technology
  • Developing character through extracurricular opportunities
  • Staying healthy, both physically and mentally

These behaviours form the backbone of our Mastering Learning programme, which is constantly reviewed for relevance and efficacy.
