Encouraging Deeper Thinking About Important Topics

Planning for the most able students is far from easy; without adequate provision such students can underperform and become disenchanted with the education system altogether, but tailoring lessons for them risks ‘losing’ the rest of the class.

Learning Lab

The Academy Learning Lab is the leading provider of exclusive online learning for more able and ambitious students. Wherever you are in the world the lab is a secure place, built by highly experienced teachers, to provide extension work for students. The Lab offers stability in an uncertain world – where thinking deeply and getting the right qualifications still really matters. Learning is seamless and uninterrupted by world events or school closure.

A number of elite universities, such as University of Oxford, Exeter and Aberdeen, have generously helped craft the material for maximum impact and high achievement. Learning Lab content is typically polymathic, drawing inspiration from University academics with more than one area of expertise. We help students understand the subtle threads which link up areas of knowledge.

Inside the Lab is a world-class multi-media platform for blended learning. Packed full of material which really extends and excites this cohort, the teachers keep an oversight of student progress from the ‘cockpit’. Here the teacher can see how well a student is progressing and access resources, notes and the ‘answers’ to hundreds of multiple-choice questions, (ranging from art to mathematics, from geography to literature, from sport to music …and much more).

Students love a blended learning approach to their education and with the Learning Lab they can study wherever they are, whether on the move or relaxing at home – whenever, wherever and however. Join the learning lab and give your students a truly individual, transferable student-centred learning experience.
