Next Generation Learners

At CCGS, education is guided by real world interests, exploration, curiosity and experimentation. We provide a space where learners can work and discover together. 

We systematically develop cutting edge facilities and next generation learning characteristics necessary for students to participate, contribute and prosper.

At the heart of our strategic plan, our next generation learning characteristics support academic performance and have been identified by employers and tertiary education programs as necessary for young people to be fully prepared for success in society.

Next Generation Learners are:

  • Digital citizens
  • Collaborative
  • Global citizens
  • Critical and creative thinkers
  • Independent learners
  • Inquisitive and innovative
  • Problem solvers
  • Communicators
  • Civically engaged


CCGS: Next Generation Learners in action

Our teachers work together in professional learning communities across the school, building an interactive resource bank that exemplifies what each characteristic looks like in practice.

Our staff model these characteristics and our common language and strategies make sure these qualities are explicitly taught in an age appropriate way throughout the school. 

CCGS is part of the AIS NSW (Association of Independent Schools) Deep Learning Project. We collaborate with a network of schools to investigate current research and world best practice for developing next generation learning, teaching and assessment. We have also been recognised by the University of Cambridge for our cutting-edge approach to next generation learning.

The opening of our new next generation junior school facility in 2021 further enhanced our commitment to next generation learning.
