Santa Maria College we use many teaching approaches, including results-oriented teaching. This ensures that our students learn for life. Our teaching gives them the knowledge they need to prepare for their future. This holistic approach to education has proved successful in our College for many years, as confirmed in different evaluations and reviews carried out by our institution.
We use a variety of additional study methods, offering a more inclusive form of teaching, to provide students with a better chance of success. This teaching approach is particularly designed to match the students' different learning types.
Our study groups enable students to apply their learning in a practical way. The teacher's role here is to provide inspiration and encourage the pupils to create their own study groups. Students can therefore determine the content and methodology in their study group.
