Results-Orientated and Skill Based Teaching
Kimichi School ensures that our students learn for life. Our teaching gives them the knowledge they need to prepare for their future.
We use a variety of additional study methods, offering a more inclusive form of teaching, to provide students with a better chance of success. This teaching approach is particularly designed to match the students’ different learning types. With our ‘home school feel’ we encourage flexibility within lessons, and allow teachers to be as creative as possible with their teaching approach.
Our small classes and expectations of peer learning and assessment enable students to apply their learning in a practical way. Our Tracking, Assessment and Marking Policies underpin all learning and teaching within the school. The teacher’s role here is to provide inspiration and encourage the pupils to create their own study groups within the class. Students can therefore determine the content and methodology in their study group. Kimichi believes absolutely in the principle of students helping each other, as demonstrated through Orchestral rehearsal principles where the more able assist those less technically proficient. To coin a phrase, we really feel that we are all ‘in it together’.

Students are encouraged to either join existing extra-curricular clubs or create their own with help and guidance from members of the school council and/or staff.
Unlike other schools, Kimichi students are expected to take part in their extra-curricular activities before school between the hours of 8-9am. This ensures that the student is fresh and ready to engage before the rigours of the school day. It also means that when the school day is over at 4:35pm students can be secure in the knowledge that the school day is finished. We understand that at the end of the day students are most tired.
