Thinking Out The Box

Thinking Outside The Box

Creativity in the Classroom leads to inquisitive minds

Teachers at Bishop Bavin School often use unconventional methods to ensure that learners grasp particular concepts and ideas in very different ways.

Teachers have a long-acting impact on children and the teachers who make a great impact on a child will always be happy in the knowledge that the child has learnt something in class and will probably remember it for the rest of their lives. At Bishop Bavin our teachers take ordinary subjects and turn them into extra-ordinary lessons.
