Leadership of Teaching

Leadership of Teaching

Teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do. In every lesson, every day we want to inspire our young people to become curious learners and be enthused by our teachers’ love for their subject.

 

We believe that quality first teaching is the most important influence on young people's progress and attainment. We strive to teach lessons which engage, inspire and fuel a love of learning in each and every one of our students. We believe passionately that everyone should be open to developing their teaching and to keep up to date with new and innovative thinking and research. We pride ourselves on taking responsibility for our own professional development and actively share new ideas with our colleagues.

 

We want our teachers to be fearless, to take risks and to inject joy into their lessons. Teachers are leaders in the classroom and for a long time into their futures, we want our students to remember the passion, the wisdom and the energy our teachers brought to their learning experiences.

 

As Greek philosopher and polymath Aristotle said:

 

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
