Excellent teaching is fundamental.
We've implemented Teaching for Understanding a practical framework of education developed by Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education. This type of teaching is a simple, flexible and powerful way of re-structuring learning to focus on understanding, and is driven by the belief that if understanding is the focus of education then knowing and doing will follow. It’s used by schools globally and nationally with a long history of evidence-based success.
In this article, our Director of Teaching and Learning, Damon Cooper talks about the importance of understanding in lifelong learning.
Meet our teachers and explore our next generation learning characteristics to understand how we teach and learn at CCGS.
Of course a CCGS education adds up to so much more than can be measured by academic performance. Explore the balanced education and cocurricular opportunities that make learning at CCGS so holistic and motivating for students of all abilities.
Always forward. We challenge ourselves. We celebrate and replicate our success. We diagnose and rectify our weaknesses. Our school improvement plans grow out of teacher appraisal and our strategic goals. We use academic data to analyse past performance and adopt evidence based strategies to plan for improved academic performance.
