GUIDING IDEA: BUILDING MASTER LEARNERS.
Students continue to learn new skills, knowledge and attributes, but they also begin to learn the specific formal ways in which they need to demonstrate these things in the senior school context. An emphasis is placed upon encouraging students to be independent, self-managing, but also collaborative learners. Specific skills that assist students in becoming highly skilled at responding to formal assessment formats, particularly exams, are a focus of learning. Other skills and attributes that relate to management of the physical and mental self are also considered. Specific environments that are simultaneously supportive of and conducive to high level academic performance, whilst at the same time being protective of student welfare are a hallmark of this learning community.
