Yule Brook College is a middle school situated in Maddington. It was founded in 2000 specifically to develop more effective ways of assisting the teaching and learning of young adolescents.
We have developed an environment in which we foster relationships and pastoral care, and in which students learn in a collaborative environment. This is reinforced by grouping students in Year teams - one in Year 8, 9 & 10. Each team is supported by a Learning Team of teachers whose role is to focus as much as is practicable on a single group of students.
At the heart of the College's approach is a desire to focus on the needs of individual students. This is achieved by implementing approaches to teaching and learning which encourage students to work collaboratively with their classmates and by developing 'open' teaching and learning activities. 'Open' activities are designed to be flexible enough to allow students with less developed skills to participate fully, at the same time as providing sufficient challenge for students with more highly developed skills.
Resources at the College are utilised to ensure that class sizes are small (none larger than 25) and that a broad and interesting curriculum is available. The College has well-developed Information and Communication Technology. All students have access to email and the internet to support their classroom learning.
