ACADEMY OF EXCELLENCE
Students are accepted into the Academy of Excellence because of an exceptional ability in a certain field, the Programme is segmented into categories that reflect four broad disciplines. The four categories are: Academia, Art & Design, Music, and Sport. Each category comprises its own tailored programme of learning initiatives and activities, to maximise the benefit to enrolled students. The learning initiatives and activities are broad, varied and hugely rewarding for students.
During the course of their programme, Academy of Excellence members will participate in masterclasses, workshops, discussions with renowned industry thought leaders, specialised educational visits, and internal projects. When combined with the guidance and encouragement of our teachers, these specially tailored educational initiatives will help to expand our students’ competences, skills and attributes at a higher level. While the Academy of Excellence provides students with a broad variety of learning experiences beyond the core curricula, it has also been designed to complement the aims and content of our students’ everyday studies. Therefore, students expand their skills and knowledge in the field they excel in while also gaining a well-rounded education overall.

Students build their skills and acquire knowledge with some of the very same tools they’ll eventually use in the professional world, preparing them for a digital future.
