Our CurriculumPrimary Success Programme

All of our lessons are designed by our curriculum experts to help your child understand subject-specific information through Concept Formation.

What is Concept Formation?

Concept Formation is a teaching approach that helps your child to form a clear understanding of concepts (or ideas) through studying a small set of examples of a particular concept. It enables your child to recognise patterns, see sequences and make meaningful connections in what he/she learns. As a result, your child will be able to demonstrate deep understanding of and effectively apply content knowledge during his/her exams.

We reinforce the content taught in lessons through:

  • Comprehensive notes that clearly explain each topic through intuitive concepts
  • Weekly fun activities that stimulate your child’s thinking and analysis skills, allowing him/her to better synthesise knowledge and information
  • Breaking down topics into concepts through Concept Formation to broaden and deepen your child’s understanding of subject-specifics
  • Test/mock exams, detailed post-exam analyses and termly revision sessions

We also use our neuroscience-backed Optimal Flow Method™ to help your child fill in the gaps in his/her schoolwork as efficiently and comprehensively as possible.

The Optimal Flow Method™

In traditional learning environments, pieces of a subject are often taught in isolation. This makes it very hard for students to grasp an overview or make connections between units – they learn content without understanding it.

As a result, students may feel overwhelmed by information when revising, which in turn leads to poor performance on exams.

The Optimal Flow Method™, on the other hand, helps students connect new information to concepts they have already learnt for a new and more complete understanding. The method factors in how the brain learns best and then plays to its strengths.

With their newfound ability to connect new concepts to existing knowledge, students can now take on their tests and exams with more confidence
