Frequently Asked Questions
When you and your child are invited to a school meeting, there are two distinct processes you will need to complete: the parent meeting and the assessment section. During the parent meeting, which lasts for around 20 minutes, we have an open, transparent discussion regarding your child’s needs and how we could help.
Then, during the assessment, which lasts for around 90 minutes, your child will either be observed at play or otherwise sit a series of online assessments to ascertain their current level and the best way forward for their education.
If applications are already filled, successful applicants join the waiting list. However, the waiting list expires at the end of the academic school year, so you may need to apply again next year if you weren’t successful yet.
Please don’t forget to read our School Rules and Regulations before completing the application process, which you will need to agree to when reserving your child’s place.
If you are concerned about how your child’s education is monitored, don’t worry – we here at Maplewood Academy believe that monitoring progress is one of the best ways that our students can grow.
Our unique academic tracking system is designed to carefully keep track of your child’s progress to ensure that they are accurately meeting their milestones and learning. This also allows us to allocate additional support if your child should require it, thereby allowing us to optimize each child’s education based on a more individualized approach.
At the start of the course, your child sits a test to determine their current level, which then allows us to create the most accurate targets based on each child’s strengths. As such, if you would like to learn more about our monitoring systems, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
The IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) course is designed to provide students from around the world with a thorough standard of education. The course is studied between Years 10 and 11 and is implemented in over 100 countries internationally, making it one of the most widely-recognized qualifications for learners between fourteen and sixteen years of age.
After the course, an assessment of performance is provided through the use of grades, which range between A* (highest grade) and G (lowest grade). We aim to help our students achieve the highest grade they possibly can throughout their assessments, which include a combination of coursework, practical examinations, oral work, and written essays and examinations. Our individualized approach offers a significantly more effective learning opportunity that’s tailored around your child’s strengths, helping them reach their full potential.
In order to provide the maximum level of support for our students, we provide eight lessons per day, for a total learning time of forty lessons per week. This allows our students to develop a broad range of knowledge, with learning focused both within and outside of the classroom. If needed, we also provide additional support sessions to help our students flourish and achieve grades they can be proud of personally.
