Each structured course has a set syllabus to suit the needs of the learners. Class sizes vary depending on demand but the limit is 25 students per class. Classes are held in the new school building utilising modern teaching techniques to enhance the learning opportunities available.
Every learner is assessed throughout the year to check their progress. An annual exam is held at the end of the academic year and if successfully completed, the student will receive a certificate and progress to the next level.
All teachers go through a rigorous recruitment and selection process. To be considered, they must hold appropriate qualifications, pass various assessments including the ability to teach, and show commitment and dedication to the students’ development. A teacher’s induction session takes place prior to commencement in the role. All teachers have appraisals and must attend training in their subject areas as well as general training in classroom management.
All courses commence in September and follow the normal academic calendar. Classes run once a week during term time on either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; usually from 9.30am – 1.30pm. The day and timing of the class will depend on the level of study.
Learners are expected to attend all of their classes. They are required to supplement their studies at home with revision and homework in order to successfully complete the course.
Open days take place following the end of the academic year. Sisters are welcome to come along to make enquires, read through the material, and have a chat with the staff about the course that they are interested in.
To attend any course, each student must enrol at the enrolment days as spaces are limited, a non-refundable deposit of £30 is required to secure a place.
