Our Beliefs

girls SG09177At Cathedral Grammar we believe pupils learn best when they:

  • feel safe to share, make mistakes and take risks in a warm, nurturing environment.
  • are highly motivated to learn and are accountable for their learning tasks and outcomes.
  • understand the objectives and purpose of what they are learning.
  • have every opportunity to be critical and reflective learners and to receive feedback that encourages further learning and enquiry.
  • are encouraged to respect the beliefs and opinions of others, as well as their own.
  • know that their individual abilities are recognised and valued, and that opportunities are provided for them to practise a range of learning styles.
