Academic Achievement

 

Quality teaching facilitates quality learning.

Our consistently high record of academic achievement reflects the high quality of our teachers, the attention we give to the individual learning needs of our students and the commitment to excellence we have upheld for more than two decades.

We offer a rigorous academic curriculum that incorporates a variety of teaching practices and learning techniques that challenge our students’ natural tendencies. These activities are designed to stimulate your child’s personal interests and develop their individual talents.

Our Junior Grammar teachers are highly experienced and well qualified educators, trained in the Dimensions of Learning and the Art and Science of Teaching frameworks. They understand how to bring out the best in our students as they strive to become confident and well-educated boys and girls.

Each and every one of our boys and girls has an Individual Learning Plan. These plans are monitored to track our students’ academic development and determine how best to support them. They also inform our teacher’s lesson plans on a day-to-day basis.

Junior Grammar students have the opportunity to be challenged and supported through extension programs, and our learning support strategy assists our boys and girls who need extra assistance.

Our commitment to academic excellence and quality teaching is further strengthened by our extensive offering of state-of-the-art learning, sporting, Arts and multimedia facilities that cater for every stage of your child’s learning journey.

Technology for Learning

 

Digital technologies offer your child huge learning potential. At Junior Grammar we encourage all our boys and girls to become empowered learners in an increasingly social and digital world.

Our integrated e-learning opportunities are enhanced with a dedicated Junior Grammar Computer Lab and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. The School provides classroom sets of iPads and laptops in the younger years and facilitates a 1:1 laptop program from Year 4.

Through our Bright Sparks Workshop, we offer the latest in digital, robotics and virtual reality technology with extensive resources including BeeBots robotics, virtual reality and green screen play.

All our students from Pre-Prep to Year 6, learn skills in robotics and coding as part of the thought embedding of our E-STEAM program as part of a balanced curriculum.

Ready access to technology means our boys and girls are highly engaged in learning and more creative in the work they produce.

We also host regular cyber safety workshops for both students and parents.
