What is parallel learning?
At Tintern Grammar, this is a question we get asked every day and was the topic of conversation when our Principal, Bradley Fry, spoke to Franki Hobson at Practical Parenting.
“At Tintern, we see parallel learning as a ‘best of both worlds’ approach because it offers single-gender and co-ed classes in a co-ed school. Parallel learning acknowledges that the differing rates of physical, emotional, and psychological development between boys and girls can have an impact on their learning styles,” explains Fry. “However, it also understands that social interaction between genders is essential in developing well-adjusted young men and women.”
