To ensure high-quality delivery of our curriculum great care is taken in the selection of Reddam House teachers. This is because we appreciate the importance of their contribution to shaping enquiring minds and developing young talent. Specialist knowledge, excellent qualifications, outstanding reputations and exceptional rapport with students are just some of the qualities we expect in our teachers.
We take a cognitive research-based approach to testing with our Cycle Test Programme. This is a weekly test (of all academic subjects on a rotational basis) under examination conditions for all students in Years 4-13. The function of these tests is to provide a snapshot of what a pupil has achieved. They are also used as diagnostic tools to let teachers know what has been learned by the pupils and to flag further areas needing consolidation.
EQUIPPED FOR EXCELLENCE
We want our students to aspire to excellence in every area of their lives so we offer a unique development programme for the wider skills they will need to be happy and successful adults called A2B (Aspire to Be). Our blend of global perspectives, careers, personal and social education, thinking skills, well-being and study skills ensure that our students grow to be:
- Global citizens who understand their place in the world and how they can contribute to society;
- Happy, well-adjusted individuals who enjoy healthy relationships;
- Successful in the workplace, life-long learners who thrive on a challenge.
