Learning to Learn

Our Learning to Learn Programme

As we continue to celebrate each individual student at King’s, we want to help them achieve the very best that they are capable of in a supportive and caring environment. Academically, we want to maintain our strong tradition of scholarship and examination success, whilst also keeping in mind the wellbeing of the students and developing highly effective learning skills that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. We launched our new Learning to Learn Programme in 2019 and are already seeing how it has improved learning and outcomes for students in a sustainable, embedded way.

  • A new innovative and integrated programme of study skills, including revision techniques, from J3 to Upper Sixth
  • Regular assessments through the year have replaced end of year exams for Removes and Shells 
  • A greater emphasis on comment-based feedback to support individual learning
  • A new grading system focused on individual progress and attitude to learning
