Our approach to teaching and learning in Years 7 & 8 is that learning is relevant, rigorous and caters for the needs of individual students.
Clear links are made between learning and the real world through the provision of authentic tasks. Rigour creates and supports high expectations where individuals are supported to work to achieve their very best at all times. Teachers ensure that they know their students well and cater for their individual needs.
