Square College uses two set international examination standards, Edexcel and Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), which vigorously test the intellectual capability of it’s students. Chosen for their robust structure, students will find themselves adeptly challenged to bring out their potential. We use this extensive framework because of it’s proven international standard and acceptance in most regions around the world. It also means Square tutors are capable of handling most curriculums, whether that’s SAT’S, WAEC or the Canadian IB. We break this down below.
What are we teaching?
How it's taught
Engaging students with a multitude of learning cues, from physical actions and experiments to presentations and external trips. At Square we merge those cues with well thought out, relatable and modern examples, this allows a pace of learning that is unique to Square’s Secondary School students. Our teaching culture means that tutors are student focused, creating resources that apply to them as closely as possible.
21st century learning
Secondary and Alevel students can expect resource integration at the highest level, with our tutors on call either in class or outside class, during study periods. Secondary students will get their own 365 accounts, with a school email, drive, office and school resource centre. We continually develop, expand and create content that our students always have access to, whenever, wherever.
Quality and attention
This culture of learning isn’t something that was developed to as a spotlight on student life at Square College, instead everyone at Square is constantly improving. As a result, that knock on effect, pushes students and teachers alike to bring something fresh to the table each day. We successfully deliver a range of courses on a complex and demanding academic schedule by continually developing tutor skills, with training, performance feedback sessions and student academic targets. No one at Square College stops learning.
The 4 C's
Aside from the proven technology and excellent teaching staff, we value and encourage the contribution that students make to each other in their learning process. Collaboration, Communication, Critical thinking and Creativity lie at the centre of academic progression. Students are pushed to challenge ideas, teach each other and have conversations that ultimately lead to problem solving. Students at Square grow to navigate through anything thrown at them; Ready for life, ready for the future.
Whilst learning and preparing for the big exams, it’s important that balance exists. At Square College, students enjoy the pastoral and experienced care of their tutors with leisure sports at our sports facilities a short walk away and recreational activities such as art, chess, robotics and more, with no academic demands. We think it’s important that our students mental, physical and social health is balanced.
