Bishop's Park College in Clacton-on-Sea is divided into three schools, with school leaders, staff and students all benefiting from a personalised approach.
Headteacher Mike Davies explains how this approach allows staff to get to know their pupils, with each small school teaching a maximum of 300 students.
KS3 pupils work on themed projects for four days, with a master class on Fridays. One day a week pupils have access to clubs, freeing up time for staff CPD.
New staff find it rewarding to use their key skills in other areas, whilst pupils feel inspired by staff that understand them.
