English, Maths, and SMSC are embedded in all lessons. Interactive and engaging lessons designed for the ability and age of the child.
Our teachers continually listen to their students and are constantly adjusting their lesson content and pacing to meet student needs. Student age or year group doesn’t have to dictate lesson content and approach.
Interactive teaching: We engage our students and keep them engaged by actively clicking, drawing, writing, and more
We teach the whole child: Beyond academics we raise resilience, confidence, and learning behaviours.
Responsibility: Using co-construction to understand the curriculum, students experience their responsibility and can accomplish the objectives they have helped to set.
Flexibility: We teach to our students' capabilities; not to their age. We are a dynamic provision; not a static way of teaching.
Safe environment: Many students with high anxiety cannot contemplate entering a school, travelling on public transport, or mingling with a classful of their peers. By studying in their own safe environment, we remove a major inhibitor to learning.
Apricot has developed a variety of targeted programmes to meet the needs of learners at all levels and to enhance both the number of subjects and the number of hours your students can be provided with education. We offer a flexible provision designed to suit a range of requirements from small Groups to 1:1.
We teach to our student’s capabilities; not to their age. If older students need KS3 catch-up before starting their GCSEs, then our teachers will guide them into their GCSEs gently. As students progress, they can move up from KS3 to GCSE or from foundation to higher courses. Likewise, if they are having real difficulty, we can move them into a lower level course. We run an academically dynamic provision that allows for vertical movement based on students’ needs,abilities, and best outcomes.
Apricot delivers all the academic content of any exam specification, but is not a registered exam centre. Our students typically take their exams at their registered school or even in their homes/other safe environment.
In the programmes below, please contact us if there is a course your students need that is not on our current course lists. We are continually writing courses and welcome your input.
