REAL Projects/Project Learning

Learning through REAL Projects fuses rigorous subject content with real world problem solving. This enables students to create extraordinary work that has a real, authentic purpose. It starts with an essential question and students learn through a combination of teacher-led masterclasses and independent study time in workshops. This enables them to produce high quality end-products through multiple drafts and peer critique. All work is celebrated with a public exhibition in the local community.
