Teaching and Learning

We are proud to be a comprehensive school; this means that we serve students of all abilities. We cater for these in a variety of ways which ensures all our students are appropriately encouraged, supported and challenged to reach their full potential.

Students are ‘set’ according to their ability as they move up the school and even within sets teachers carefully differentiate tasks and resources according to the abilities of students. More Able students require work that is specially matched to their needs.   Students with learning difficulties are taught by identifying challenging targets for improvement.   These are regularly monitored through Academic Review Days three times a year.

Lessons at The Sele School are characterised by excellent planning, clear outcomes, good pace and progression as well as challenge, and varied activities, which cater for a wide variety of learning styles. As they move through the school our students are also taught the skills to help them become independent learners; vital if they are to move on to Further and Higher Education and also essential if they are to become the lifelong learners that modern society now requires.

We believe that learning can take place anywhere and by no means just in the classroom, and consequently we encourage our students to get the most out of every experience and opportunity. In this context, we provide a rich and diverse programme of extra-curricular activities and Enrichment Days, which help students develop important skills and qualities, as well as further their knowledge.
