Why Edgeborough School?

How Edgeborough empowers curiosity in their pupils with the transformative power of enquiry-based learning.

Academic practices that favour rote memorisation over problem solving, creativity and critical analysis are widely considered to be out of touch with today’s rapidly changing world. A quick search will present numerous articles that encourage cultivation of a broader range of skills and competencies, while condemning our over reliance on exam performance. Educators are increasingly striving to lay the foundations for a generation of independent thinkers who can navigate the complexities of higher education and the professional world with confidence. The concept is clear but how is the educational landscape in schools being shaped to achieve this? 

At Edgeborough we seek to create an enquiry-led, pupil centered environment which nurtures the innate curiosity of learners and empowers them to become active seekers of knowledge. This approach means that teachers act as facilitators, guiding and supporting pupils, while respecting pupils’ autonomy. Learners can then explore content that intrigues them and formulate their own questions, rather than following a rigid curriculum outline.  

By engaging in enquiry, Edgeborough pupils develop metacognitive awareness, which enables them to reflect on and regulate their learning process. This leads to a more independent and self-directed approach to their education and fosters learners who can adapt and learn in various situations. It is learning that gives way to a wide range of skills and outcomes beyond traditional assessments, but still sees Edgeborough pupils leaving Year 8 and going on to some of the best senior schools in the country.
