English for Academic Purposes

The English for Academic Purposes Course is an ideal way to experience Akademeia’s first-class approach to learning for the first time. These exclusively designed courses are geared towards students between the ages of 12-16 considering applying to our school at both Fifth Form entry points.

Each syllabus will prime participants though the same overriding dual focus: addressing the most common language mistakes we know hold students back when they come to our school, as well as equipping learners with the necessary skills and strategies to succeed in demanding educational contexts. Key elements of the English language, combining both structural and lexical focusses, will provide students with the foundations necessary to successfully complete many of the same assignments required of our term-time students, such as developing research skills, academic writing, presentation delivery and interacting with a variety of texts.

The Preparatory Mathematics Course is intended to provide a necessary foundation for success in an academic Mathematics pathway. Split into two age groups, the course is designed for participants currently attending Year 8 (grade 7 in the Polish and American systems) or Year 9, with a view to applying to Akademeia to Years 9 or 10 respectively.

The Year 10 entry course (online) is aligned to meet iGCSE content standards and mathematical practices, with the Year 9 entry course (stationary) also carefully adapted to the age and experience of its participants. Students will be provided with the opportunity to learn a variety of mathematical processes, including problem solving, communicating and mathematical reasoning. They will be taught how to make connections between the subject and its applications, become mathematically literate, and to appreciate and value mathematics while making informed decisions as contributors to wider society.

A good, strong foundation in these areas of mathematics is necessary for success in future mathematics courses and this course will help students further understand, appreciate and enjoy maths so they are in a prime position to both study at Akademeia and develop a life-long affinity with the subject.
