Teaching and Learning at Summerhill
Learning sits at the heart of Summerhill and is our core purpose. We believe that every child deserves the chance to achieve their potential, develop their character and excel in all they do. Our staff continually develop their practice to deliver a high quality learning experience for students, guided by students’ needs and the evolving curriculum.
Our aim to provide rich learning experiences for students is underpinned by a set of shared ‘M.A.P.P.E.D.’ principles (Modelling, Assessment & Feedback, Planning, Practice, Explanation and Differentiation). Our research-informed approach is tailor-made to suit the needs of Summerhill’s students and forms the basis of our ongoing programme of professional development for staff.
