Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

Life after Levels

The changes in assessment and reporting following the removal of the National Curriculum levels are frequently refered to as Life after Levels (or LaL). The school has seen the removal of the levels as a great opportunity to turn the focus from the numbers back to the specifics about learning. We have conducted a great deal of research into cognitive science/psychology (the science of how we learn) and pedagogy (the theory and practice of education) and developed an approach that best fits the needs of the girls at Beverley High School.

On the evenings of 20th & 21st June we held Parent Information Evenings for Year 7 & 8 parents/carers. We are delighted that these were extremely well attended. A great deal of information was passed on regarding the changes. The hand-out from the night is available using the following link Y7-9 Assessment LaL. This provides a really helpful summary in one handy document. Alternatively, you can use the pagelinks from the main assessment page (use the back button) for more detail.
