At Mounts Bay Academy we’re proud to be recognised as an Adventure Learning School, a certification that guides our teaching ethos and everything we do.
Progressing through our learning environment is an exciting, challenging adventure so students are able to relate their knowledge to the real world in a meaningful way, experiences become learning expeditions as we promote the development of those academic habits necessary for future success.
We believe that learning needs to take place in real contexts in and out of the classroom that enables students to be challenged, developed and taken just beyond their comfort zone.
It is a learning philosophy based on the latest research of educational good practice with a belief that the curriculum and para-curriculum is colourful and joyful in a wide range of contexts.
Take a look at some of the stories below to see just some of the ways we incorporate Adventure Learning into our curriculum.
