With the second week of study getting underway on our junior campus at St Mary’s School, our students will be getting stuck into another week of classes. The courses for our 8-12 year olds are fascinating and diverse. This is your guide to some of the wonderful Summer 2019 courses at academic Ascot!
Some of the 8-10 students will be able to enjoy Academic Discovery, with the 11-12s offered Academic Discovery Plus. These courses encourages students to develop transferable skills as they consider a key question via a number of classes and practical sessions. The students will research their topic and look at it from a number of different angles – a perfect preparation for later life!
Students from both age groups will be able to learn amazing technical skills, such as those taught on Coding with Scratch. This course provides students with an introduction to the complex world of coding, as well as affording them plenty of opportunity to get hands-on in practical exercises.
There is also the Junior English course, which will welcome students keen to learn the written and verbal skills of the English language. English is used as a lingua franca all over the world, and is therefore a useful language to learn as it removes communication obstacles in a wide range of fields. Our students will be able to practice their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in a fun and encouraging environment.
These courses are joined by so many more – we’ve barely scratched the surface here! The students at Ascot are in for a summer of fun and games, but also terrific learning. These skills and this experience will give them valuable tools for later life, and that is a huge bonus!
