Learning at Kilvington

At Kilvington, we strive for academic excellence within an authentic, inclusive and collaborative teaching and learning environment. The sequential development of skills, knowledge and understanding are underpinned by breadth, depth and challenge in learning. This process is informed by regular monitoring and assessment of student learning and values timely feedback.

High expectations, an emphasis on self-regulation, and positive student-teacher relationships create an engaging and supportive climate where students are encouraged to think, grow and strive for their personal best. Our philosophy is underpinned by our Character Initiative and neuroscience research on the benefits of instilling a Growth Mindset.

Student learning is a rounded experience that equips students with the skills to navigate, connect and thrive in a transforming world. Learning at Kilvington fosters academic excellence, shapes perspectives, strengthens character and builds skills for success.

Single-Gender Classes

Years 7-9 students have single-gender classes in English, Science, PE and Health. This allows the learning and activities to reflect the different needs of boys and girls at these ages and allows students the opportunity to learn in both co-educational and single gender environments.

We find that Kilvington students respond well to a combination of single-sex and mixed classes at this stage of their learning
