Teaching Strategies

At Neander, we use a variety of teaching strategies to enthuse our students and help make learning more effective. Teachers also use group and pair work to encourage team co-operation. Students work on their own in different environments such as the Library or Computer room. This is an excellent way of fostering self-learning and developing research skills. Learning also continues outside the four walls of the classrooms through educational field trips and excursions.


Class Size and Pupil Teacher Ratio

Our class population of 20 at Neander gives each student adequate attention in all areas of the curriculum. This allows us to stretch the most able students whilst allowing for the special needs of those with learning challenges to be met.


School Uniform

The school has a full compulsory uniform which all pupils are required to wear. Details of the uniform, the compulsory PE kit are listed in the loose-leaf section of the admission pack.
