Teaching and Learning
"Learning without thought is labour lost; thought without learning is perilous"
Developing both thought and learning in young people is the core of what Aiglon is about. From the moment the youngest pupils enter the Junior School through to the Graduation Ceremony on the final day of school for the Upper Sixth, lessons are designed to stretch and challenge pupils. A low staff:pupil ratio means that pupils receive an unprecedented amount of individual attention, allowing them to develop at the right pace appropriate to them. There is high-quality provision for pupils whose first language is not English, and for those needing support with mild dyslexia and other learning difficulties.
A carefully designed junior school curriculum covering a wide range of subjects leads on to a middle school curriculum where pupils start to specialise, selecting (I)GCSE options with advice from tutors, and then on to the Sixth Form. Here, pupils select six subjects to study, three at the higher level and three at the standard level as part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Exam results are important, but so is the need for independent learning skills so that Aiglon pupils will flourish at university.
