It’s in our DNA…

Here at Duke’s, we use a teaching model called ‘DNA’ to make sure that pupils have a great learning experience in and outside of the classroom. DNA breaks down as:

D – Differentiated for support and challenge
N – New and exciting learning opportunities
A – Active Learning

The skills that pupils gain by using the DNA model are designed to help prepare them for any challenges they may face during their time in secondary school, including exams, and in the future.

There are 8 strands of DNA, each with their own symbol. These symbols are used in every lesson, all throughout the school so pupils will know instantly how best to complete an activity and what skills they will need.
