Learning Mindset

"...we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned."

John Holt

Our Aim

At Southfield School, we want to instill certain habits and attitudes to enable our students to be more confident in their own learning ability. By becoming more effective learners, students will better concentrate, think harder and find learning more enjoyable.

Whilst exam results are exceptionally important, we believe that it is also our duty to support Southfield students to become lifelong learners.

High Level Learners

From the very first day of Year 7 we promote the idea that all Southfield students should aspire to be a ‘High Level Learner’ - one who is:

  • Ready
  • Resilient
  • Resourceful
  • Reflective
  • Responsible
High level learner qualities
Rewarding positive behaviours
