A Top Performing School
Avicenna Academy is the first and only school that offers a specialism in Herbal Medicine alongside a broad curriculum. The school is a private funded school offered at a very discounted fee due to its non-profit basis as a registered charitable institute. We envisage Avicenna Academy attaining an outstanding school status, by building on our good with oustanding features, in the not so distant future and we expect a 100% 5 A*-C GCSE pass rate. The Academy will also strive towards achieving the best English Baccalaureate results in the country. This will ensure that students attending Avicenna Academy will progress to Further Education and gain enrolment into a university from the Russell Group of Universities.
Smaller Class Sizes and Qualified Teachers
The academy caps class sizes to 20 students per class; currently class sizes are 12 students or under. All teachers will be qualified to teach the subject in their respective specialism. The school is a small academy which means that teachers benefit from fewer students to manage, which results in a superb teacher to student ratio and an individualised curriculum.
Students in our academy are taught Year 1 of the Advanced Scholarship Programme over their five Years in secondary school. This will prepare the students for entry into the second year of our Advanced Scholarship Programme whilst completing A levels or equivalent courses.
Merit Based System
The school has decided to implement a merit based system where students are rewarded based on their achievements and they will be encouraged to work hard. Hard work and excellent initiative demonstrated by students is recognised and rewarded with trophies and prizes. The best students are awarded with honours such as class valedictorian.
