At The Sycamore School, our academic method is unique and structured to be effective, dynamic, practical, intensive and goal-oriented. We achieve these via the following:
We believe in success through small classes. This enables individual attention and effective teaching and monitoring of pupils. All classes are well lit and air conditioned.
Intensive tuition and assessment
Intense teaching will ensure that pupils are familiar with all aspects of the syllabus. Using well planned timetables, practical teaching, continuous assessment and homework, pupils’ progress are monitored. Pupils are examined at the end of each term on the term’s work. Parents will be kept informed with reports on the academic achievements and welfare of their children twice each term.
Our state-of-the-art facilities include technology enabled classrooms and electronic teaching facilities such as interactive whiteboards, televisions, projectors. Other facilities include our ICT suites, music studio, home economics rooms, science labs, language room, arts studio, libraries, and play equipments which make teaching and learning more practical, lively, realistic and interesting.
The school is well staffed with competent, experienced and professionally qualified teaching and non-teaching staff. Members of our staff are carefully selected to complement our modern teaching methods and facilities. We believe that good teachers are vital to the success of a school. Therefore our staff are trained and constantly retrained in order to maintain our reputed standard.
The school encourages close involvement of parents in monitoring the progress of their children. Open days are held once every term, where parents can discuss issues with teaching staff on the academic performance and conduct of their children. Parents may also be invited by the Headteacher on academic or discipline issues with their children.
The Parent-Teacher Association presents a platform for parents to contribute on issues affecting their children. Events also are held each session to acquaint parents with the activities of the school.
