It is the first time the public school and Moray Council's schools have worked together

Gordonstoun hosted a pioneering joint learning venture with other schools from across Moray yesterday.

A total of 220 teachers from throughout the region attended the all-day event held on the Duffus campus.

It is the first time the public school and Moray Council’s schools have put their heads together to improve education across the board.

Guy Claxton, a cognitive scientist and renowned British educationalist, appeared as the keynote speaker and addressed the educators on “learning power”.

There was also a series of workshops focusing on educational research, sharing knowledge between local schools, secondary maths and learning opportunities in outdoor education.

The council’s education support officer Janet Cornall said: “Our partnership with Gordonstoun is hugely beneficial for the sharing of practices between public and private sectors.

“All schools face similar difficulties and research shows that one of the best ways to develop and improve is through dialogue with colleagues and sharing expertise.”

Gordonstoun principal Simon Reid added: “We are delighted to have hosted the first joint learning venture between Moray schools and Gordonstoun, and I hope it will be the first of many.

“As an English teacher, I know that just how true it is that all teachers face the same challenges in the classroom, and with Mr Claxton as the keynote speaker I feel certain that everyone who attended will have found something inspirational from the day.”
