At Bacchus Marsh Grammar we have a very clear idea of the kind of environment which fosters the best education. The school believes that learning best occurs when there is a clear structure and a clarity of expectations for students. This approach is seen at both a “whole school level” but of equal importance in a clear and consistent approach to individual teaching and classroom management issues. We also believe that learning best occurs in a calm environment. We look to provide an environment which is both friendly and purposeful. In a settled environment students are able to concentrate on their learning and the equally important development of positive social skills. A sense of calm is enhanced by a staff who are concerned, clear in their teaching methods and dedicated to developing the individual. The school’s expectations of students are clear: We want all students to work towards achieving their personal best and developing their individual talents. We will not accept behaviour which interferes with the learning or happiness of others.
