Academic Enrichment

The personalised care we provide enables our teachers to help each student identify realistic goals for our students’ academic, social and spiritual development. Tutors meet regularly with the students in their tutor groups to discuss their progress and communicate to parents where there are concerns about a student’s progress. Technology is integrated where appropriate at each level of schooling.

 

Providing purposeful learning experiences that incorporate both explicit instruction and individual inquiry enables our students to develop the passion for learning and the commitment to excellence they need to fulfil their potential and realise their dreams. Our teachers recognise that deep thinking is the essence of creativity and a critical ingredient in every significant learning experience and seek to provide students with opportunities to resolve complex real world problems.

Gifted and Talented Education

Northholm Grammar caters for the individual learning needs of all students including those with gifts and talents in all areas including, but not limited to, academic subjects, the creative arts, social and leadership skills and sporting interests. Included in the range of opportunities we provide are programs for unique groupings of students, multi-age classes, acceleration and extra support within the classroom.

 

Some students need to be extended beyond the core content, to work at higher levels demanding greater complexity of thought. They need challenge and freedom to explore, research and express themselves so that they can accomplish what they are truly capable of. Enrichment activities, an extensive co-curricular program and a range of clubs also provide opportunities for students to extend and enrich their learning experiences.
