Breaking Through the Barriers

mediumblue

Summary

In this programme two schools attempt to break through the range of barriers to boys' learning.

Matthew Arnold School, a mixed comprehensive in Surrey, is trying a step-by-step change methodology to test strategies that can be practically introduced.

St Aloysius RC College in north London is working with its local football club, Arsenal, to develop achievement raising strategies.

It appears that there are no quick fixes to raising boys' achievement, and this programme acknowledges the wider social and cultural barriers that cannot be overcome by schooling alone.
