Flexible learning for 21st century living
St Brendan’s students are leaders of their own education in our agile learning environment. Our flexible learning spaces offer students the opportunity to work with children across all grades and abilities.
Students can set their own goals which gives them more chance of success because they own their tasks. Working with their peers while monitored by teachers, we see St Brendan’s students achieving more than in traditional classroom formats. By creating opportunities to challenge and stretch all students in a safe, supportive environment, we are giving each child an education that equips them for life in the 21st century.
