Learning and Teaching

Learning and Teaching at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School takes place in an environment where students are encouraged to take an active role in the learning process.

This is designed to support our students to:

  • Learn with others, working collaboratively to make progress
  • Recognise that to fail is to become a better learner and embrace a growth mindset
  • Foster the skills of independence, creativity and resilience
  • Learn in a variety of ways
  • Be successful learners who achieve challenging goals
  • Engage in a variety of opportunities which foster learning
  • Be empowered to take responsibility for their own learning
  • Evaluate their own and others learning and act on feedback to make progress
  • Share their views and developmental suggestions via regular Student Voice opportunities

Above all, we aim to ignite in our students a love of learning which will serve them well throughout their lives.

To enable our students to achieve this we are proud to offer a wealth of opportunities and resources:

  • A world-class learning environment where the use of technology and innovative e-learning projects enhances the student experience, both within and beyond the classroom (for example through approaches such as “Flipped Learning”)
  • A superb enrichment and co-curricular programme to enrich, challenge and enhance learning and development
  • Excellent Learning Resource Centre facilities on both sites, including the superb newly refurbished Sixth Form Library
  • Student leaders of learning who work with others to coach, mentor and lead (such as the Peer Mentoring Programme, Teaching and Learning Ambassadors, Sports and Literacy Leaders)
  • A well-planned and resourced study and learning skills support programme
  • A strong commitment to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for all staff, enabling them to be reflective practitioners who enjoy exploring different approaches to learning and teaching, sharing practice and learning from each other
