Teaching & Learning
Buxton Community School offers a broad, balanced, and vibrant curriculum that fully develops our students and helps to create young people with the potential to access careers of their choice.
We believe that education should be a positive experience, and that all students can achieve and be successful through dedication and hard work. We aim to provide educational experiences which are lively, challenging and satisfying, applying teaching methods which are varied and that enable students to develop a wide range of knowledge, skills and understanding. We aim to create a love of learning and develop the skills to be successful; our dedicated and committed teachers always respond to the latest developments in education and are focused on providing the best for our students. Student progress is monitored closely, with support and intervention strategies being used effectively to secure rapid and sustained progress for students of all abilities.
Our provision delivers a range of experiences, both in and out of the classroom, to enrich and extend student learning.
Home learning (homework) is a key combination of this provision. Through a combination of project-based research and creative assignments, students gain a deeper subject understanding and develop autonomous learning skills.
