  • Creating and insisting on a positive learning atmosphere in the classroom

  • Setting high expectations for all pupils

  • Setting homework regularly

  • Promoting high attendance and punctuality

  • Setting challenging whole school,departmental and individual pupil targets for improvement and closely monitoring progress towards the achievement of these targets

  • Giving praise and encouragement in class and using our successful awards system to reward effort and achievement.

  • Providing a wide range of support strategies inside and outside of the classroom to enhance learning.

These include:

  • Homework / Revision Clubs

  • Residential Courses

  • Mentoring Schemes

  • Study Support Programmes
