The diamond model

At GSAL, students are educated in co-educational classes up to age 11 and again at Sixth Form. However, from 11 to 16 they are taught in single-sex lessons; the diamond model of learning.

This means they benefit from the social aspects of a co-educational setting, whilst also gaining all the advantages of single-sex teaching. Lessons are tailored to suit different learning styles and teenagers are free from the pressure of performing in mixed gender groups.

According to exam data collected by the Independent Schools Council in August 2016, a higher proportion of entries obtained A* to C grades in A-level in diamond schools compared to other schools. For GCSEs there was a higher percentage of pupils gaining 5 or more A* to C grades.
