We’ve spent a lot of time exploring the characteristics we most want to nurture in our students, from Pre-Nursery through to Sixth Form. Over the past 12 months our teaching and learning groups have worked closely with staff and students at Rugby School Thailand (as well as with the Rugby Group in the UK) to create a bespoke set of learner profiles. These profiles that allow our teachers to better understand how each child learns, whilst enabling each learner to develop agency as they become more aware of how they learn best. They will be evergreen not just in teaching and learning, but across all aspects of school life, feeding into Rugby’s “whole person” philosophy. Here’s a look at what they are and why they’re so valuable:
