OUR UNIQUE APPROACH
What makes Lockerbie College unique is that it offers a completely customised experience for each and every student. Cognisant of the different personal journey each student embarks upon, the school focuses on supporting each of its students as they dream of and plan for their future.
While teaching the Barbados National Curriculum, we ensure that our students are supported in every way possible with small classes, specialist or trained tutors and the most resource-rich classroom environment on the island.
WHAT WE PROVIDE ACADEMICALLY
CREATING THE 'VILLAGE' THAT SUPPORTS EACH STUDENT
At Lockerbie College, tutors, students and parents come together to form the "village" that helps the child to grow. It’s this support
that ensures the student engages in effective learning and succeeds on their own terms. Within a technology and resource-rich teaching environment, the curriculum isn’t presented, it’s discovered in a fully interactive way.
We get to know each of our students extremely well and understand how each one learns best. We then find a way to make learning smart and happy, rather than tedious and stressful.
Our carefully selected, experienced tutors have the perfect blend: an energising approach to learning and a firm belief in the ability of each student they teach. This engages and excites our students, helping them achieve academic independence in the process.
MEETING POTENTIAL AND ACQUIRING CONFIDENCE
Lockerbie College provides a multi-dimensional learning environment. We have invested in specialised resources, interactive equipment and most importantly, our staff. This approach means that every single student is offered the absolute best opportunity to succeed, no matter what needs they may have. Not only are our students encouraged to meet their academic potential but the confidence gained through positive reinforcement encourages, on a social level, their healthy growth as well.
Our classes are configured specially to meet the needs of the student. We offer one-on-one tutoring and specialised support classes for areas of weakness. All of our classes remain small enough for each child to receive individual attention from his/her teacher.
It is through these small group classes that individual students are able to maximise their abilities. The benefits are: close communication with tutors, expanded literacy skills, increased motivation and raised self-esteem.
