At Christ’s College we strive to be innovative in our teaching and learning while maintaining the rich traditions of our past. Our teaching and learning approach is based on our considerable experience in educating boys, as well as the latest research on boys’ learning needs and educational achievement. We want all our boys to be engaged with and achieve in their learning, and aim to create an environment where boys thrive. Christ’s College is committed to developing key competencies through all our programmes and across all year levels.The capacity to think critically and creatively, to deal effectively with diversity and change, to relate to others and be active global citizens … these are the enduring competencies of a Christ’s College graduate.The Centre for Teaching Excellence & Research ensures the alignment and sequencing of the curriculum across all year groups (Years 9–13), and enables the consistent development of these competencies.
