Our Academic Approach
'Learning how to learn is life's most important skill.' Tony Buzan
At the New Forest Small School we understand the value of achieving academic excellence. We believe that knowledge empowers our students and equips them with vital skills needed for life's journey.
This has led us to question how we can most effectively create an educational environment and atmosphere that fosters in each student the desire to learn and aspiration to academically succeed. Do students need more lessons, more homework, more tests etc... to help them achieve? Or do we need to focus on how children learn, what motivates them and what might hold them back? In this section we will address these questions as we explore how we can optimise a child's education.
