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

Tutor Reading

 

In 2016 the school become heavily involved in Research. We believe that any new initiatives we introduce should be supported by high quality research about the likely impact. One of the areas we looked at was the power of vocabulary. Subjects have an intensive and knowledge rich basis to them in the National Curriculum. Having the ability to access them is crucial. One of the ways in which we think we can help tackle this is by modelling vocabulary and reading. So twice a week the Form Tutor reads to the group. this ensures that students are hearing from expert readers and evidence suggests it will help them with their vocabulary and language development. We also select texts that are challenging, might be deemed classics, relevant and culturally rich or diverse. They introduce themes that we believe are important in a child's development. Our Year 11 were particularly pleased this year because one of the texts they had read actually appeared on their GCSE English exam paper!
