Academies

Academies, which are optional and take place in the afternoon instead of regular sports and activities, enable students to customise their course and provide the opportunity for them to continue learning outside the classroom in small, supervised groups.

Academies offer professional tuition in a range of sports, leisure pursuits, creative activities and academic subjects and are designed to increase students’ knowledge, skills and technique.

Academies bring many benefits: some stimulate students’ creativity, others expand their capacity for reflection and others help students to develop their critical thinking skills. Some academies raise students’ fitness levels and physical agility, while others help them to improve their self-confidence by challenging them to step outside of their comfort zone.

Every academy, whether it be a sport, creative activity, leisure pursuit or academic subject, will help students to develop their commuication skills, confidence in speaking and fluency.

Academies are available for all levels: Beginner, Elementary, Intermediate and Advanced. Beginners will start with the basics while more advanced students will perfect their technique and skills.

English Level Requirement : CEFR and Language Assessment

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching, assessment, (CEFR), was created by the Council of Europe to be a language standard that describes the ability of English language learners in speaking, reading, writing and listening and measures learners’ learning outcomes at different stages.

This standard is widely recognised and used by educational institutions, enterprises and governments around the world and provides general guidance for the development of language syllabuses, curriculum and textbook design, language testing, etc.

Additionally, many internationally recognised English language tests, such as IELTS and Aptis, are associated with this standard as a reference for test score grading. In describing a language learner’s ability, in terms of speaking, reading, listening and writing, CEFR is broadly categorised into the Levels below:
