Our students’ progress is continually being monitored by their Class Teachers. Because they spend so much time with the pupils they are able to do this in a way that does not add any unnecessary pressure. International research now shows that enjoying learning depends on keeping a pupil’s curiosity alive. This is a key principle in our approach and means that when our pupils come to learning that requires abstract or academic skills, they see this as just another challenge – not one in which they are going to fail, but one in which they are going to succeed because they have developed the necessary tools and most importantly the passion for learning new things.
