Approaches to Learning

A considered approach

Whether at the earliest stages of learning or in the final preparations for A Levels, expert consideration is given to the approaches to learning at each stage of a pupil’s academic development at Cokethorpe.

Recognising that pupils are motivated, inspired, driven, and challenged in different ways lies at the heart of the academic programme throughout the Prep and Senior Schools. Our pupils are encouraged to become passionate about their subjects, to study beyond what is taught and later examined and to gain a true understanding of each subject’s place in the world.

How we approach learning

Discover our approaches to learning and the interconnected methodology across the Prep and Senior Schools.

Dynamic learning environments

Our classrooms are dynamic environments, where technology is utilised to enhance, rather than to replace, the traditional lesson experience. Each pupil in the Senior School is issued with a Microsoft Surface device, which aids their learning and helps better prepare them for the realities of the modern workplace. For more information on our Digital Learning provisions, please click here.

We encourage our pupils to take responsibility for their learning, expanding their understanding in conjunction with their teaching which provides them with a breadth of knowledge that goes well beyond the core curriculum. Meanwhile, small classes are maintained throughout the School, helping to ensure that every pupil receives an individual focus on their own learning.
