Our Approach to Learning
We all know that boys and girls are different, and academic research tells us there are very real advantages to a single-gender environment.
Creating a Supportive Environment
At Hereworth we take care not squash a boy’s spirit, by creating an environment that focuses on providing a strong foundation for future success. Our boys actively contribute and compete with their peers, and learn to take responsibility for their actions. We encourage confidence and self- belief in every area.
Our boys are given a range of learning experiences, centred on the core areas of numeracy, literacy and science, and partnered with a large array of compulsory non-core disciplines. This diverse curriculum helps contribute to a well-rounded boy who is able to take risks and be a confident, connected lifelong learner.
We offer a wide range of subjects, even for our youngest students. Our classrooms are fully equipped with technology and e-learning is incorporated into daily class life.
Core subjects of Literacy and Numeracy, as well as integrated units (Science, Health, Tech and Social Science) are a key focus at new entrant level. This is supported by music, speech and drama, art, languages, religious education and physical education/hauora, resulting in a well-rounded curriculum.
We also tailor a specialised physical education and sports programme for our youngest ones. The opportunity to join sports teams is optional for the very young, and we find most of them take it up. Specialist coaches of the highest calibre are brought in to coach the boys throughout the year, and we also take the boys to weekly swimming lessons.
