Intensive Academic Programme

Our Intensive Academic Programme is aimed at students wishing to sharpen their academic abilities, whilst also developing life skills such as confidence, leadership and teamwork. Our past students have used this course as a booster to their year round studies and as an induction to studying in a UK boarding school.

Students will develop and expand on existing knowledge of the core academic subjects Maths, Science and English as appropriate to their key stage, lessons are functional, interactive and designed for collaborative study; all lessons are taught by subject specialists.

Each day includes three 90 minute lessons of each of the core subjects. The last session of the day offers sport, STEM classes or exam preparation.

The STEM projects allow students to experiment and put into practice “what they can do, with what they know”. Using their knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to solve problems, gather and evaluate evidence and make sense of the information. These daily projects help develop design, creative thinking and problem solving skills, whilst leading or working as part of a team.

Alternatively, students can choose to focus on Exam preparation, 11+ or 13+ common entrance exam. The preparation classes will include exam technique tips, mock exams and feedback sessions.

Classes are taught in small groups of 12-15 pupils. The course is open to native English Speakers and those with an upper intermediate level of English or above. There is a lively social programme of activities each evening to ensure that pupils enjoy their time on the course and make new friends from around the world.

  • 7.5 hours of each English, Maths and Science per week
  • 3 hours of sport
  • 4.5 hours of STEM projects or Exam preparation
  • Varied social programme: disco, quiz, talent show
  • Two full-day excursions per week to London and beyond
