OUR FOUNDING PRINCIPLES
Small class sizes, to ensure each student gets the attention they need and deserve. A focus on each student’s individual learning profile, to help them reach their full potential. An emphasis on immersing students into the cultural and social life of SCC, so that they always feel part of the family.
HOW WE LEARN
Our teachers are the most important members of our team. We provide them with everything they need to focus exclusively on their students’ requirements, in and out of the classroom. Early in the course, each student is allocated a tutor, who will be with them for the whole academic year.
Through regular meetings, a learner’s profile and scheme of work is established which (in conjunction with subject teachers) forms an individual plan for each student. This way, we can be sure that every one of our students is being challenged, supported and encouraged to precisely the correct degree.
HOW WE PROGRESS
Testing, exam preparation and monitoring are all important. They are fundamental in ensuring we are achieving our aims together. Subject tutors will provide monthly reports, which are available to parents/guardians and will be used to set short-term targets.
HOW WE SUPPORT
Our students are a long way from home and often way outside of their comfort zone. We take a holistic approach to our students’ education and development, giving them practical support – bank accounts, doctors, registrations, etc, as well as pastoral support and care.
