‘Learning for the 21st Century’: Elmhurst Staff benefit from group-wide training

Elmhurst School for Boys

11th September 2014

Teaching staff from Elmhurst School started the new academic year with shared training workshops, with other UK schools within the Bellevue Education group, on the topic of ‘Learning for the 21st Century’.

Led by Nigel Battey, who has over 30 years’ experience in education, both as a Headteacher and as a Director of Services, the sessions explored the most effective teaching strategies and tools to fully involve children in their own learning. Focus was on the need to develop pupils who are well equipped for future challenges, able to work together and adapt to change, and who are instilled with the desire to ask their own questions.

The workshops allowed staff to collaborate with colleagues within the Bellevue group and to share best practice, and ideas developed at the sessions are already being applied in the classrooms at Elmhurst, to benefit pupils this term.

Tony Padfield, Head of Sport said, “Meeting together with other schools in the group has not only been invaluable in terms of sharing ideas, but it has also helped us to focus on the strengths of what we already do at Elmhurst. Talking to teaching staff from other schools has also highlighted the variety in our aims and approaches and helps to provide clarity on the direction of the school.”
