What did the Romans do for us?

All our topics are enquiry based and will all focus on a specific enquiry or questions that drives the topic. But what is Enquiry-Based Learning (EBL)?

EBL describes an environment in which learning is driven by a process of enquiry owned by the pupils.
Starting with a ‘scenario’ and with the guidance of a facilitator, students identify their own issues and questions. They then examine the resources they need to research the topic, thereby acquiring the requisite knowledge. Knowledge so gained is more readily retained because it has been acquired by experience and in relation to a real problem.

It is essential that our pupils are educated for knowledge creation, lifelong learning and leadership. They will take on leading roles in their future working environments: directing change, asking important questions, solving problems and developing new knowledge.
