Our approach to learning
At The E-ACT Burnham Park Academy we aim to provide a curriculum that prepares our students to take advantage of the many opportunities in life.
In short a broad and balanced curriculum that is personalised to the individual needs of every student. The breadth of study is guaranteed through the wide range of subjects on offer while the balance is applied through our careful selection of qualifications that take into account the varied learning styles of our students.
We offer a mix of both knowledge-based and skills-based courses. While both routes are academic, the knowledge-based courses cater for the students who are more adept at demonstrating their academic prowess through examination and the ability to articulate the knowledge gained under strict traditional exam conditions. On the other hand the skills-based curriculum is more suitable for students who are better at applying the knowledge learned through project/coursework based activities.
Both routes lead to accredited qualifications and are recognised by colleges and universities, so we actively encourage our students to choose a mix of both to develop their knowledge and skills. We do however guide them towards the route that will guarantee them the best progress and attainment level possible.
Teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do at The E-ACT Burnham Park Academy.
