Language of Learning
Our curriculum offers a wide range of subjects allied to an ambition to delve more deeply into them. This provides a broad, stimulating and challenging education. Our approach to teaching and learning embraces a distinct Davenies Language of Learning that encourages the boys to be Enthusiastic, Curious, Courageous, Persevering and Reflective. These attributes help to develop independence and a positive approach to learning in the boys from the age of four. This, in turn, enhances self-esteem and leads to greater academic attainment. In this sense the boys’ growth in independence gives them the tools to get the most from the educational experience and, at Davenies, their individuality is valued. The boys are encouraged to think for themselves, to embrace challenge and to view mistakes as opportunities to improve.
