Teaching and Learning
At Wickham Church of England Primary School learning is at the heart of all that we do. We believe that staff who love learning inspire children to do the same. Children learn all day, during lessons, playtimes, lunchtimes, school trips and collective worship. Learning is the acquisition of any new skill, concept, knowledge or understanding. We have developed an engaging curriculum to secure personal success for all of our children.

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”

“Students who are more confident of their own learning ability learn faster and learn better. They concentrate more, think harder and find learning more enjoyable. They do better in their tests and external examinations.”
