Learning Styles

In the wake of Multiple Intelligence Theory different learning styles were identified. Everyone has an extraordinary capacity to learn in different ways. To understand what a learning style is, just think of how you prefer to learn new things. Do you soak up new information through pictures, sounds or in some physical way through your feelings or touch?

It is critical to share with every learner that the school environment favours one style over the others. This does not mean the learner is deficient in any way because their learning style might not match how schools are set up. These strategies empower them with a better way to understand the type of environment they are in and ultimately how to succeed at school.

Forres Preparatory School is a progressive, co-educational school housed in the heart of Rondebosch, Cape Town. We are committed to providing a balanced & dynamic education for every child, with the belief that children are unique and that individual minds learn differently. The Forres Family is made up of a team of passionate teachers, supportive parents and children who love their school. Forres children thrive in this challenging, yet nurturing environment.
