Case Study:
 
Kate Farrell, Director of I-College and IBCP Co-ordinator
Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre
 
Practice:
Kate has been instrumental in setting up and developing the I-College at Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre. The I-College is the first centre of blended, independent and personalised learning in the UK. Catering for students in Years 9-11, it has grown under her leadership from an initial cohort of 14 in 2014, to over 60 students enrolled for the next academic year. The curriculum provision allows for learning without limits, more freedom, less timetable constraints and a true cross-curricular approach giving exciting opportunities for collaborative and independent learning.
 
Impact:
Significant impact has been proven by the fact that students are achieving and progressing at a higher level in I-College than in most mainstream lessons. I-College students are able to progress and develop in a supportive environment, at their own pace. This has resulted in engaged students who take responsibility for and engage in the process of their learning and students who are dynamic, resourceful and enterprising. It also has a significant impact on the staff team, enabling them to collectively work towards a common goal rather than being responsible for the sole delivery of one subject.
