The Learning Circle
"I have always been very careful in choosing the right education for my children and the decision to put my children in Beacon is just right. Beacon has made my children love learning. They are very enthusiastic to learn new things each day."
We live in a time of rapid change, when, for the first time in history, we are preparing our learners for a future which we cannot describe. The education of learners must be adaptive to this dynamic and ever-changing world, and for this to happen, schools must place the Learner and learning at the very core of everything it does. The Academy promotes a holistic and inquiry based approach to learning, where learners are encouraged to imagine, create and innovate as they discover new ideas.
Each theme of work in our curriculum connects to the core principles of international mindedness and global citizenship. This gives learners the opportunity to develop critical thinking about complex global issues in the safe space of the classroom. As learners connect their learning to the real-world, they are encouraged to explore, develop and express their own values and opinions, while listening to and respecting other people’s point of view. Young learners are able to make informed choices about exercising their own rights and their responsibilities towards others.
The Learning Circle has six main elements that permeate throughout a learner’s journey at the Academy. Academics is covered through the rigorous and internationally recognised curriculum, facilitated by qualified and experienced teachers. Every learner will have exposure to The Arts in various forms from Preschool through to Senior School. The Academy considers Physical Education of paramount importance to ensure a child lives a healthy and balanced life. Outdoor Education programmes are planned to cement a learner’s understanding of a particular topic or concept. All Beacon Academy learners take pride in being involved in Service learning initiatives, demonstrating compassion and empathy for all of humanity. The Academy runs a wide array of Activities providing every learner the opportunity to extend themselves in areas of their choosing.
Imagination is the most important gift to mankind. We can step out of the present and revisit the past. We can put ourselves in someone’s shoes and see with their eyes and feel with their hearts. The impossible suddenly becomes possible through imagination.
Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have value. When we take our imagination and put it to work, it becomes creativity. Being creative is doing or producing something with passion and determination.
We can only come up with something original if we are prepared to make mistakes. Innovation is about discovering something new or improved while putting original ideas into practice. When we innovate, we discover through our ideas, something positive for the benefit of mankind.
