Future focused curriculum
The high-quality online curriculum sets Pearson Online Academy UK Global apart from a traditional private school or home-school curriculum. It’s designed to help students gain the knowledge and thinking skills they’ll need for life after Pearson Online Academy UK Global, including the rigors of higher education and their chosen career path.
The flipped classroom teaching method increases student engagement and encourages critical thinking, which is why we use it at Pearson Online Academy UK Global. Students work through interactive self-study materials to develop an understanding of subject content, followed by a structured LiveLesson® session in a virtual classroom. Students work through materials independently at a time and pace that suits them, and the technology generates deep insights about their learning. This frees up our teachers, making them available for individual sessions with students to help them with any questions or uncertainties they may have. Each teacher has at least an hour a day available for drop-in sessions with students.
With the best teachers and resources available to them, students master core subjects: English, mathematics, and science. A selection of exciting Co-Curricular courses extend the learning experience. Pearson Online Academy UK Global provides every student with academic counselling to help them select classes that broaden their skills, allow them to explore new interests, and push them to achieve their goals.
Students are positioned to be recognised as strong applicants at universities around the globe, reflecting the strength of the school’s curriculum and Co-Curricular programme, the quality of teaching, and the self-management skills they gain from participating in online learning.
