EDGE – Look to the future
This year sees the introduction of an exciting new subject on the timetable for First and Second Year pupils: EDGE.
EDGE stands for Explore, Develop, Grow, Evolve and is the result of years of work developing innovative teaching and learning strategies that help prepare our pupils for an exciting and ever-shifting future.
This bespoke course has three core strands: Learning to Learn, Big Ideas and Problem-Solving in Action. The Learning to Learn strand builds upon our formidable reputation as a school which helps pupils build skills to allow them to be more self-directed, independent learners. Big Ideas, gives time to exploring the complex ‘wicked’ problems in the world, such as the environment or education-poverty. This feeds in to the final strand, in which we give pupils the opportunity to collaborate on projects which allow them to develop solutions to real-world problems.
The course will also be delivered in the Lower Sixth, beginning later this year.Back to all news
