Modern Learning Environments
Our Modern Learning Environments Support Our Focus to Provide a Learner Focussed Curriculum
In recent years we have redeveloped our school into an innovative, modern learning environment, which is designed for our 21st Century learners.
Our modern learning environments have been designed to align three key principles. Firstly, how the brain works best. Secondly, how effective learning occurs, and thirdly, how effective teaching occurs.
Our innovative, modern learning environments are flexible, open and well-resourced to enable our students to engage in learning that is personalised, socially constructed, differentiated, student initiated and connected.
Our classes can be split into smaller groups and spread over a wider area or combine with another class to allow team teaching or integrated learning areas.
Our learning pods have fewer walls, more glass than traditional cellular classrooms. This provides the opportunity for teaching and learning to be deprivatised. Working in an open environment enables learning to be shared between teachers and learners.
Our students and teachers are provided with a range of learning spaces and electronic devices to enhance learning through a range of different learning activities, such as reading, group work, project space, wet areas, reflection, and presenting.
“There have been major changes to the school’s facilities with the completion of a redevelopment of classroom buildings. These new open area learning spaces support the school’s vision of providing a learner focused curriculum.” ERO Report, 2015
