We saw the Flipped Classroom showcased by a U.K.-based, U.S. teacher at the Royal Holloway Teaching & Learning conference in 2013 and decided to implement it. So far we have kept the Flipped Classroom model, but made refinements along the way.
We spent a lot of time preparing the staff, but it turns out that the students like change less than the staff, particularly the older students. We spent a lot of time in class and communicating with parents to overcome this.
Use trials to get buy-in from both staff and students
Cornwallis Academy has been completely transformed since it opened its new building in September 2011. The Academy now offers outstanding facilities for students aged 11 through 18 and an enhanced 21st-century curriculum. With its specialisms in language and science, Cornwallis Academy has a real focus on students obtaining valuable skills to help them in their careers, with strong links established in the business world so they can achieve their goals. Individual learning amongst students is also promoted with great emphasis on using ICT in learning program: Cornwallis is one of only six Microsoft Showcase Schools in the U.K.
