Learning Communities

Our Learning Communities include large open areas for collaborative learning, and quiet spaces for independent learning, as well as technology / media, arts, resource and reading spaces.  

Each LC is equivalent to the size of two and a half single-cell classrooms.   Flexibility is a key point, with the furniture able to be changed around depending on the type of learning that’s going on. 

We aim for one teacher per 25 students in general (one to 15 in the New Entrants).  It’s a genuinely collaborative environment that makes the best use of the different teachers’ skills and passions.

Research proves that the design of modern learning environments creates a secure and stimulating learning environment and supports innovative and imaginative teaching practices.  The end result is a boost in student engagement levels, which can lead to improved academic achievement.  

Please have a look in the Resources section to the right for the "Meet the Teacher" resources that were shared with parents at the start of this year.  This will give you a little bit of information about the teachers and about how the Learning Community operates.
