Project Based Learning

“It’s not just learning that’s important. It’s learning what to do with what you learn and learning why you learn things that matters.” - Norton Juster

Department Overview

In Project Based Learning (PBL), teachers make learning come alive.

Students work on a project over an extended period of time – from one week to a full term – that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by creating a public product or presentation for a real audience.

As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills. PBL unleashes a contagious, creative energy among students and teachers. It keeps the learning alive and offers opportunities for students to develop skills and knowledge in a wide range of contexts.

Project Based Learning is run in year 7 and 8. This prepares them with a skillset that they will benefit from when studying their GCSEs and for life after Biddenham.
