A COGNITIVE ACADEMY

W

e  pride  ourselves  on  being  a  ‘Cognitive  Academy’.  Our  vision   is  to  develop  independent,  resilient  and  resourceful  young  

people  who  are  adaptable  and  well  equipped  for  the  competitive   and  rapidly  developing  21st  century  work  environment. We  achieve  this  by  developing  skills  such  as  independent  learning,   critical  thinking,  decision  making  and  emotional  intelligence  through   the  Cognitive  Learning  curriculum.  Additionally,  every  Monday   students  set  out  a  series  of  targets  that  they  aim  to  achieve  during   the  week  and  on  Friday  they  reflect  on  their  success,  planning  how   they  will  improve  during  the  following  week.
