High expectations of staff and students generate a highly focused learning environment. This reflects the school’s goal of supporting students to develop passion for learning and discovering their own potential for personal and academic success.
The school is committed to appointing well-qualified teachers with expertise in their specialist areas. ACG and school leaders maintain rigorous quality assurance of staff performance and professional growth.
The generally instructional mode of teaching suits the school’s strong academic focus and is complemented by the fostering of students’ self-efficacy, and ownership of their own learning. ERO observed positive, highly focused, and well-managed classrooms throughout the school. The school’s achievement information indicates high levels of student achievement across Cambridge assessments, and consistently high University Entrance level achievement.
Extracurricular opportunities are encouraged, including music and performance, and an increased profile has been given to participation in sports. Learning support and pastoral care help students in their wellbeing and achievement. This support includes tutor and mentoring programmes, relevant programmes for English language learners and the employment of a counsellor.
