The benefits of small class sizes at Lichfield Cathedral School have been repeatedly proven through both academic research and pupil outcomes.
Teachers have more one-to-one time with each pupil, getting to know them better and providing individual attention and specific feedback.
A spokesman for the school said: “This is critical for the development of skills and for building a supportive
rapport between the teacher and the pupil.
It also means that no-one is left behind as it is easier for teachers to identify when a child is struggling and provide targeted support.
“When pupils have a strong relationship with their teacher, they are both reassured that someone cares about their progress and they want to do well, leading to greater engagement with the curriculum and enthusiasm for the material, higher expectations and better quality work.
“In a small class the teacher can ensure everyone participates – there’s nowhere to hide! In larger classes, pupils can get easily distracted or disengage from the content of the lesson; similarly, shy children or those lacking in confidence can find it difficult to speak up.
“Smaller classes are quieter and foster a more informal, relaxed atmosphere providing the encouragement pupils need to participate and have a voice.”
