Venture’s personalised approach to learning ensures that all students are effectively supported and challenged to make progress.

During 2014-15 Venture also launched a Master Maths Centre to focus on gaps in learning. A diagnostic approach demonstrates that these gaps have been effectively addressed.

The Master Maths Centre – Aimed at raising pupil’s attainment in Mathematics specialises in boosting pupil’s progress with a personalised programme of intervention. Based in a dedicated Mathematics area the highly skilled staff work with small numbers of students at a time – ensuring that the pupils can move forward in the subject in a supportive and nurturing environment. This programme has been highly successful; pupils selected have made, on average, 2 sublevels of progress more than if they had not taken part. With the challenges faced of the new curriculum and literacy barriers in examinations, boosting the progress of our pupils sets them up to achieve highly throughout their Academy life and beyond.
