Teaching and Assessments
Beginners start at the basic level of Ankodi, then proceed to Balpothi, Standard 1, Standard 2, Standard 3, Standard 4 and finally to GCSE. Class sizes generally range from 12-15 students per teacher.
In February and June each year, students complete academic exams. Mid-term exams are taken in February, which tests the student’s knowledge and ability on what they have learnt from September-January. These results encourage students to successfully progress into their final end of year exams in June. Teachers use this to monitor each individual students’ strengths and weaknesses. From February -April, teachers plan and prepare how to bridge any gaps in their learning. In April, our aim is to complete the syllabus and help students recap on all the material and work covered throughout the year.
All students who pass the end of year exams are awarded a certificate of achievement on the last day of term.
We are a Joint Council for Qualification (JCQ) approved examination centre since May 2002 - Our Examination Centre number is 12767
GCSE Students sit their speaking, reading, writing, and listening papers between April and June.
To date, we have had a 100% GCSE pass rate. All students who pass are awarded a certificate certified by the Pearson examination board.
All the teaching staff are highly trained and have DBS clearance.
In-house training is given for any new procedural, regulatory, resource development and management, classroom management and promotion of new methods of learning. Our teaching staff strive to improve teaching standards on a continual basis.
