Teaching, learning and assessment

We place huge importance on teaching, learning and assessment and expect staff to deliver exciting, inspiring lessons. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is rigorously monitored, ensuring that are lessons delivered are of sufficient quality and challenge students appropriately.

We also ensure that marking of student work is completed and in appropriate, as this has a significant impact on student progress, together with ensuring that homework is set to challenge students' knowledge and extend learning opportunities.

Regular staff training is a strong feature of the academy with all staff being encouraged to work together to share ideas and improve student learning. We speak regularly to students to gain an understanding of their opinions on their learning and canvass parents’ views through regular questionnaires. We endeavour to act upon the feedback from these surveys where appropriate to continue to develop as an academy.
