The Learning Environment – Joint work with the Student Ambassadors


The Learning Environment Focus Group and the Student Ambassadors have worked very hard this term to create a display to celebrate the achievements of year 7 pupils. The “achievement tree” (each leaf is a message from a year 7 student explaining what she is proud of or what she has achieved this year) is proudly exhibited next to our KS4 and KS5 displays. Take time to read some of the comments – they show what a great experience they’ve had this year!

The Learning Environment – Focus Group


As part of the Learning Environment Focus Group we have spent time over the last 2 terms reviewing our use of display areas and worked on improving the use of display to impact on T&L.

We have looked at the following areas:

improving the subject specific displays in classrooms to support T&L (we are using areas outside of classrooms to display pupils’ work, mainly corridors)


engaging students in learning via reflection/evaluation boards


improving questioning to link the learning environment and the Mike Hughes CPD


promoting our subject area


celebrating our work
