The Science of Learning
We are passionate about education and about incorporating the latest pedagogical research into our teaching practices. The school is staffed with highly qualified, passionate teachers with a thirst for continuous professional development. We review our teaching and learning methods constantly and use a combination of more traditional, tried and tested strategies and newer approaches based on research in learning theory, including Flipped Learning, Outdoor Learning, Meta-Learning, Growth Mindset and much more.
At St. Helen’s College, children discover how and why particular ways of learning work for them and continuously reflect on their learning to improve. Class work, both oral and written, is completed to a high standard and homework is set at appropriate levels throughout the school. At all levels, reading forms the first and most crucial part of the homework routine.
