The Holy Trinity Church of England Secondary School

Independent Learning

In our fast-paced society, in which schools have to prepare students for professions that might not yet exist, and exams are explicitly testing application skills, Independent Learning is more important than ever. Independent learning does not mean students work without support or in isolation. Instead, students are taught how to develop their skills, and how to work efficiently and deliberately in support of their own learning. In Independent Learning, teachers help students to make choices about their learning that will accelerate their progress.

Holy Trinity is committed to support your child's development of their Independent Learning skills for each subject.  If you would like to see how each department supports Independent Learning, please click on the link below.  If you would like more information, please email the Head of Department or the Lead Practitioner in charge of Independent Learning, Colleen Wells.
