Education and Learning
Education and learning at one of the North-West’s most successful and inspiring independent primary schools
Like all GEMS managed schools, we consistently attain high standards of academic achievement. However we know that children need more than academic teaching to develop into exceptional adults.
GEMS schools embrace a philosophy of preparing children for the world and future challenges. So education at Clevelands, extends beyond the classroom to provide a wide range of extra curricular activities. These include sports, nature trips, arts and crafts and exploratory excursions that provide a well-rounded experience, and develop the children’s potential.
Our teachers are specialists in their fields and encourage children to participate, create and contribute. We encourage exploration, innovative problem solving, independent expression and decision-making. This helps children to become informed, confident and active learners with a strong sense of self.
Assembly is held daily, either within the classroom or as a collective group. Pupils of different denominations and faiths are encouraged to participate since we believe it strengthens the social, cultural and spiritual dimensions of the school.
We encourage team and individual competitiveness, so the children take part in numerous competitions and fixtures with other schools in all the main sports. These include football, cricket, cross-country, swimming, rounders, athletics, gymnastics, and netball.
That is why we are one of the most successful and inspiring independent primary schools in the Greater Manchester area.
