Teaching and Learning

  • At Hamilton College we are committed to helping your child become confident readers, writers and communicators. We understand that equipping our students with these skills will ensure that they are more able to reach their potential in every subject.
  • Not only will your children be better readers, writers, speakers and listeners, we hope they will feel happier, more confident and enthusiastic with regard to their learning.
  • We collaborate with many other subject areas, including Humanities, Drama and I.C.T. and we are fortunate to have much examining experience at both Key Stages. We seek to address the often-low literacy scores of our intake on entry and look for every opportunity to promote the needs of all our learners.
