Differentiated Learning

Central to the Kilvington educational philosophy is the uniqueness of each student within the School community.

We celebrate the individuality of each student and all that they can bring to our learning community. Teachers at Kilvington take into account who they are teaching as well as what they are teaching, as our teaching and learning goals are to plan actively and consistently to help students move positively along the learning continuum.

Differentiated instruction is embedded at Kilvington. If your child learns faster, is ready for greater depth or breadth of knowledge then our teachers vary the learning sequence and use methods such as compacted curriculum, tiered tasks, and acceleration in some cases, to broaden the scope of the learning. If your child requires additional support then provision can be made.

One size does not fit all at Kilvington and our programs are flexible so that we can maximize the potential of all our students.

Our Cocurricular program, Crosscurricular projects, Masterclasses and Enrichment Program, and ever broadening Elective programs give students across the School the opportunity to contribute, be affirmed, stretched and accomplish things they may not have thought possible.

Separate Classes

Our Years 7 – 9 girls and boys attend core subject classes; English, Maths, Science and PE separately. We find that Kilvington students respond well to a combination of single-sex and mixed classes at this stage of their learning.
