Our teaching methodologies are outcome-centric. This helps identify the progress students make after a specific learning activity, determining the gap between their existing learning condition and their desired learning state, while providing better direction to the planning of all learning activities.
What constructs a well-structured teaching module? An effective pedagogy. Pedagogy is the science of teaching or education. At Pearson, our pedagogy focuses on ‘how’ teaching and learning occur. We use an array of teaching strategies that include direct instruction, collaborative learning and inquiry - based learning. Ultimately, we aim to blend consistency and variety in teaching methods by combining established learning theories with innovative practices and programmes. All of which help students improve their learning outcomes and achieve their full potential.

A CHILD-FRIENDLY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Classrooms are designed to cater to the specific needs of students of all ages, providing them with a sense of security and consistency. Whether they are in kindergarten, middle school or high school, we ensure an environment tailor-made for their needs
The schools provide expansive playgrounds as well as a well-constructed sporting area ideal for a variety of games. As a result, there is both space and provision for all kinds of sport, as well as indoor games.
All our schools have a well-stocked library that includes periodicals, journals, magazines, newsletters, fiction, reference books and encyclopedia. The library also offers integrated learning programmes that include phonics for pre-primary levels and literary classics for older students.
THE PARENT-TEACHER CONNECT:
PARENT ORIENTATION PROGRAMMES
Our parent orientation programmes aim to connect teachers with the parents of children about to join pre-primary, primary, middle and high school. These programmes are a unique opportunity to familiarize parents with the academic year ahead. They include explanations about examination patterns, extracurricular activities, required parental support and more.
A bi-annual newsletter in the form of a page document that keeps parents updated on school activities.
Our monthly interschool newsletter containing information and photographs of the activities taking place across all the schools.
INTERNATIONALLY CERTIFIED TRAINING FOR IMPROVED TEACHING SKILLS
At Pearson Schools, a teacher’s role extends far beyond the classroom. Each teacher is carefully selected after a rigorous selection process that includes tests and interviews. Our teachers are facilitators – they actively participate in initiating and organizing unique classroom activities and learning methods. They are specially trained to do so through a series of training programmes. One of these is the In-Service Teaching Programme. It provides solutions to matters related to curricula, content and technology; it develops individual teaching styles; and it helps teachers to assess themselves using feedback from students, colleagues and the management. The In-Service Teaching Programme is certified by Pearson Assured.
