Centre for Pedagogy
The word pedagogy means ‘the art and science of teaching’ and in 2009, the School was innovative in establishing its own Centre for Pedagogy, dedicated to teacher development and enhancement.
Motivating boys to achieve their best is a strategic imperative for Christ Church. It is an area of strength that the School is focused on constantly improving. To support this strategy, the School undertook comprehensive research into the motivational drivers in education and, in particular, what motivated Christ Church boys. In 2011, the results of this research together with the work of the Centre for Pedagogy and academic staff, enabled the School to create its own distinctive Christ Church Pedagogy. Our specific pedagogy is an aligned, whole school approach, which includes the ways teachers, parents, boys and school leaders can work together to motivate boys to be their best.
The Centre for Pedagogy now includes a director (focused on the whole school and the Senior School), an assistant director (dedicated to the Preparatory School) and an e-learning facilitator to enable educators to use the best of the School’s advanced technology.
