Nexus aims to help learners develop the skills and attributes to be successful in a rapidly changing world. Universities and employers want affective skills in addition to academic qualifications. They want people who are problem solvers, who can collaborate and are excellent communicators who can use and apply information in novel situations. The curriculum and teaching at Nexus supports learners to gain both the qualifications and skills needed to be successful.
Nexus learners are taught by subject specialists in state of the art facilities. As an Apple Distinguished School, technology is used to enhance learning in all curriculum as we empower our learners to become digital citizens. As an empowering, learning focused community, Nexus teachers take professional learning seriously and are proactive in ensuring they are well trained to teach the programmes on offer. Many teachers act as examiners or team leaders for the awarding bodies we use and there are robust quality assurance processes in place.
Nexus learners are supported throughout their journey by excellent pastoral care and careers guidance counselling. A restorative culture of respect and high expectations drives all that we do. Education for our learners extends beyond class time with over 90 co-curricular activities, from Robotics to Junior Achievement Award. Our teenagers have a wide range of activities to explore and encourage their passions as they learn to take their productive place as leaders in the global community.
