Our Approaches To Learning

Learning never exhausts the mind. 

Leonardo da Vinci

 

At Thomas’s Academy, we place a particular focus on the process of learning, believing that it is far more important that children develop as active learners rather than passive recipients of knowledge. Children at the Academy are challenged to develop their learning skills alongside their subject-specific abilities. In this way we prepare children for the next stage in their education, and for the unpredictable challenges of the 21st century workplace.

We ensure that our approaches are informed by the very latest educational research. We know that intelligence is not fixed and that we can help children to become more successful learners and therefore we believe that schools have a key role in developing children's mindsets.
