Teaching and Learning

Effective teaching is the key driving force within the academy to ensure the best possible outcomes for our students.

Lessons are carefully planned and executed to facilitate students’ involvement in their own learning journey through a range of differentiated activities, ensuring a high level of challenge and support, set within a diverse curriculum, extensive extra curricular program and first class state of the art facilities.

In our most recent surveys undertaken with both students and parents, the view is that this aspect of the academy provision is at least good and improving. Whilst we are obviously pleased with the feedback in this respect, we continually seek to refine and enhance the quality of teaching through our internal program of professional development, whilst also engaging in Delta Academies Trust wide developments as part of our Teaching School status as an academy group.

It is our ultimate aim that students enjoy their experiences within the classroom to such an extent that they take responsibility to drive their own learning in order to succeed.

The academy is currently reveiwing its assessment policy in light of recent national changes.
