FULL TIME/ ELECTIVE HOME SCHOOLING HUB
Our elective homeschooling hub and full-time school offers a practical and creative curriculum with a variety of subjects with exciting and engaging lessons in a relaxed and inspiring learning environment.
Our tutor-led sessions enable children to learn in a flexible way enabling them to flourish through creativity and are taught how to use these skills in life and to prepare for a future career. Project and practical based learning intertwine all subjects together, allowing pupils to move freely about their way of learning and exploration into their creativity as an individual as well as being very hands on.
Why do we choose to teach using a Project and practical Based Learning method?.....Because it is filled with active and engaged learning, inspiring students to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they're studying. Research shows that more subject knowledge is retained using practical teaching methods.
GCSE's can be studied and we offer the core subjects English, Maths and Science. Optional GCSE's can also be studied at Colours Academy with a choice ranging from Arts, Humanities and other subjects such as Psychology, Business Studies and much more. The best part is... there are zero subject clashes, choose your dreams with big boundaries.
From January 2018 we will have two classes:
Class one: Years 7 & 8 taught using practical, creative and insightful based learning
Class two: Years 9, 10, 11 taught dependent on GCSE choices.
