Learning & Teaching

At Strabane Academy we are committed to high quality teaching and learning to engage and enthuse our students with a love of learning and a curiosity about the world around them. Lessons are facilitated with a calm and purposeful environment where students are nurtured and challenged to use a variety of skills to achieve their potential.

At Strabane Academy every lesson counts. We aim to develop the students’ skills across all subject areas in their journey with us. Teaching staff use the latest pedagogical studies to inform areas of focus within teaching and learning. This year we have had a particular focus on embedding retrieval practice within our lessons as well as using effective assessment for learning.
