The Institute of Teaching and Learning

We believe in the acquisition of very important learning skills as well as an ideological understanding of what good learning is all about and what it’s for. I think that’s the kind of thing that separates our students from others.

Mark Beverley, Director of Curriculum

Learning without limits

The Institute of Teaching and Learning ensures we continue to lead and innovate, to provide a broad and balanced education, a challenging curriculum, and inspiring teachers who are not afraid to find new ways to engage students.

Sevenoaks’ reputation as a school that demonstrates excellence in teaching and learning has undergone significant development over the last couple of years through work we have undertaken to interrogate the qualities that define this education, as well as refine our practice further and share it with others.

The Institute’s work has been spread over four main areas of research:  Character education; Wellbeing; Digital Learning and Learning to Learn.

Our ongoing aims are that we continue to identify and implement new, exciting ways in which students at Sevenoaks receive a fully-rounded education - one that genuinely affords the best possible preparation for their lives ahead, work collaboratively with people and institutions both locally and overseas, as well as to advise schools on the most effective teaching, learning and leadership strategies.

These are exciting times for forward-thinking schools; we are thrilled to have an opportunity to reflect meaningfully on everything that can and should define us as a world class educational institution.
