High Quality Learning and Teaching

Redwood Park Academy is committed to providing an excellent education for our pupils. Our staff work hard to create a learning environment where pupils enjoy their lessons, participate actively and achieve their best.

Staff are also learners and continuously evaluate and improve their practice using our coaching model of “coaching 3’s”. Their learning is facilitated through the comprehensive school continuing professional development programme.
