Learning Habits

Central to a life-long love of learning, and interwoven throughout each student’s curricular and co-curricular experiences, the RGS Learning Habits are the characteristic behaviours and attributes which students develop in order to thrive as they progress through school, university and beyond.

  1. Organisation: As an RGS learner, I am punctual and well prepared so that I can make the most out of every opportunity.  I manage time effectively and meet deadlines.  My work is clearly and systematically ordered.
  2. Engagement: As an RGS learner, I work in partnership with others, test their ideas, demonstrate empathy and look towards their wellbeing. I am an active listener who is well engaged in learning; I notice and learn from what others do well. I fulfil my role within a team or group to the best of my ability.
  3. Imagination: As an RGS learner, I combine my existing knowledge and skills with intellectual curiosity and creativity to successfully plan and achieve things in unfamiliar situations, of which I am proud.
  4. Perseverance: As an RGS learner, I am tenacious when facing adversity or suffering setbacks.  I will understand and learn from both my mistakes and those of others, and resolve to try again.
  5. Aspiration: As an RGS learner, I aim to go beyond my current successes.  I enjoy making the most of the opportunities presented to me, both inside and outside of the classroom, irrespective of the outcome.
  6. Reflection: I recognise and celebrate my achievements and those of others.  I look back at the progress I have made and seek feedback so that I can refine and improve targets for my future development.  I have a sense of perspective, rationally test claims of truth and take responsibility for my own wellbeing.
