Personalising the Learning Journey

Personalising the learning journey means high quality teaching that is responsive to the different ways children achieve their best. It means shaping teaching around the way different children learn.

Personalised learning is a philosophy in education that seeks to address the issue of individual minds learning differently. It means tailoring education to individual children's needs, interest and aptitude so as to ensure that every pupil achieves and reaches the highest standards possible.

Research about how children learn has made groundbreaking discoveries. Children are unique and each child learns in a different way, most schools cling to a one-size- fits-all philosophy. Whereas most children manage to cope with the way in which their education is being served up to them, many fall off the map and present as not being able to learn effectively or easily.

Education at large needs to pay more attention to children's individual learning patterns and individual minds so that we can maximize our children's learning potential.

Forres is moving away from a one-size-fits-all school system and is personalising the learning journey by addressing the issue of individual minds learning differently.

By doing so, different learning pathways are created through the education system to address the individual needs of each child.

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.
