What is the Crowther Centre
Brighton Grammar is transforming from a school of best practice to a school of unquestionable excellence in boys’ education, founded in evidence-informed practice. The Crowther Centre powers this work through collection and analysis of data, servicing all areas of the School with research and measurement and enabling an improved and informed decision-making process.
Effective Learner Model
The Effective Learner Model is a school wide tool and approach to teaching and learning.
It has been developed using contextual evidence, experience and the best available research into improving student learning outcomes. The model also incorporates some features that make it our own including: boy-friendly/personalised language, integration of our wellbeing and learning models and straight forward instructions.Find out more
At Crowther Centre we have been teaching boys since 1882. We've honed the knowledge we've learnt over those years and prepared some handy position papers on various topics to assist you with parenting and raising boys.Subscribe
