Answering one million questions on Skoolbo is an outstanding achievement and so we are delighted to welcome the students of Highfield School as our newest SuperSchool.

They join an elite group of 29 UK schools and only 153 schools worldwide!

This kind of success doesn’t just happen and we know that reaching this level requires great determination and self-belief on behalf of the students. We’re sure that they have also had wonderful enabling support from some pretty fantastic parents, carers and teachers.

The school motto is ‘Believe we can achieve‘ and it is clear that these fabulous students apply this to everything they do as these terrific photographs and quotes demonstrate.

“It’s absolutely fantastic for learning English and Maths. I love becoming a superhero.” Emily Bate – 10MW

What a great way to display those well deserved Skoolbo certificates!

Of course learning can only happen in this way if there are wonderful teaching and support staff providing the opportunities. Therefore we are always thrilled to hear from the adults too –

“Skoolbo has been a huge success at Highfield School. Our students have been able to overcome barriers to learning and demonstrate progress that they otherwise would have struggled to show. It has been incredibly effective in engaging our students in their numeracy and literacy learning and lots of our students play and learn at home. My students loved the fact I put in my own avatar so they could compete against me within the game and they took great pleasure in informing me when they had beaten me.” Michael Warren – Head of ICT

It sounds as though the students really enjoy meeting Mr Warren’s avatar in the game!

“Parents have commented on how enjoyable the students find Skoolbo and how nice it is that they are so keen and enthused in learning outside of school.” Sarah Skidmore – Year 7 Form Tutor

“It has been really encouraging to observe the levels of engagement in learning through Skoolbo in our school. Students are proud of their achievements, speak enthusiastically about the challenges and there is healthy competition between class groups to be top of the leader board!” Pat Marshall – Headteacher

It is marvellous that the whole Highfield School community; teachers, students, parents and carers enjoy working together to promote and celebrate learning in this way. It’s little wonder they are so successful.

Congratulations Highfield School and thank you for getting in touch.
