Teaching and Learning

At Ryde Academy, students and teachers have worked together to establish joint high expectations. They work together in order to make the most of every learning opportunity from within and outside of the Academy. It is becoming common practice to see engaging discussion both inside and outside of the classroom that embraces discovery and reflection in order to enhance thinking.

Inspirational teaching, self-evaluation and self-improvement is at the heart of our new differentiated CPD cycle. We strive to ensure that all staff are provided with support and guidance and are equipped with the opportunity to reflect individually as well as with others in newly established teaching triads.

We have worked very successfully with teacher training centres in the South and for 2016 we are excited to also be welcoming Teach First participants for the first time at Ryde and on the Isle of Wight.

As we build on the rapidly improving quality of teaching within the school we are proud to have established a growing Teaching and Learning team, a brand new Teaching and Learning hub and a mind-set that promotes learning at high levels for all students.
