After School Tutorial Programme
The After School Tutorial Programme meets from 3.30 to 6.00 pm
during term time. Its purpose is to help our young leaders raise their levels of academic achievement.
Classes, which are led by qualified teachers, are fun and culturally sensitive. Each child is given an individual learning plan they work through with support from tutors and peers.
This element of the programme has been designed to focus on the skills necessary for effective leadership. Children are given training in social skills, public speaking and business acumen.
During school holidays our young leaders further develop their leadership skills by undertaking a
varied programme of projects and events, including: - field trips, sporting activities, business management, educational and cultural visits etc.
The Academy recognises the value of positive role models and therefore uses a pool of professionals to provide mentoring and advice. Participating professionals include local and national politicians, business leaders and community activists.
Family Support Network
Parental involvement in a child's education is a crucial ingredient to success. Children seldom rise above parental expectations and input. The relationship between home and school is a vital one and extends to include the Academy. Parents are therefore expected to be actively involved in the work of the academy.
Training and educating our young leaders is not something we do for parents but with them. As a result parents are expected to attend monthly family meetings and contribute wherever they can to the ongoing development of the academy.
The academy promotes civic responsibility and moral leadership by involving our young leaders in community service projects.
Examples of community work include working in residential homes and on homeless projects, gardening, painting and decorating and volunteering for other charities.
These projects teach our young leaders to have empathy for others and to reciprocate the investment others have made in them.
