At Coloma, we are committed to nurturing the intellectual, spiritual, and personal growth of each student, empowering them to become compassionate future leaders, critical thinkers, and confident individuals. Our teaching and learning vision is grounded in the principles of Catholic education, promoting a holistic approach that fosters academic excellence, moral integrity, and a lifelong love of learning. 

We aim to achieve academic and personal success through 7 main principles.


The Coloma Educational Principles (1)

Through a meticulous exploration of each of these guiding principles, our vision delves deep into the intricate tapestry of education at Coloma. At the core of this vision lies an unwavering belief in the transformative potential of our students, who are not merely recipients of knowledge but are sculptors of their own destinies. Each principle serves as a compass, guiding our students toward a horizon where their growth is boundless and their impact indelible.

Our teachers are committed to creating a stimulating and inclusive learning environment that encourages intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity. Our educators employ innovative teaching methods, individualised attention, and collaborative projects to engage students in a journey of academic discovery, preparing them for success in higher education and beyond. Our school does this through our main teaching principles of GLIDES which are explored in every Lesson. 

  •  Good routines and Expectations 

  •  Link prior learning through starter activities

  •  Independent practice (I do. we do. you do)

  •  Develop oracy and cold call questioning 

  •  Evaluate learning through frequent use of Assessment for Learning

  • Stretch and challenge learners 

Our students are encouraged to be curious, adaptable, and open to new ideas not just in their learning environments but throughout their lives. By nurturing a love for learning, we empower them to continually seek growth, innovation, and personal fulfilment.

At Coloma, our teaching and learning vision transcends the boundaries of the classroom, empowering each student to embrace her potential, cultivate her character, and contribute positively to society. Through this vision, we strive to create alumni who are confident, compassionate, and capable of shaping a more just and inclusive world.
