You will need to undertake your own investigations into whether home schooling is allowed in the country you work/live in. This would also apply to any comparison between other education systems around the world.

Can students join at any time?

The simple answer to this question is Yes. Learners can join anytime, although they would be expected to make up some of the work that has been missed depending on the time of year and we strongly recommend speaking to our enquiries team for further recommendations. 

 

When can we enroll?

We operate a rolling admissions policy meaning that we accept enrolment throughout the academic year.

How quickly can my child start?

The enrolment process can take on average between 3-4 days to complete, this timescale is dependent on how quickly the admission team received all requested paperwork and all required fee payments. For this reason, we recommend registering to join us at least 1 week before the students intended starting date.

You will need to submit a copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport, a proof of address and your ID, e.g. a copy of your utility bill or CNIC (with correct address). You will also need to submit a copy of your child’s academic transcripts for the previous term.

Can my child continue at regular school?

We do have a few students who study at LEARN School and Academy and another school – this can be tricky to try to match up timetables. If you require more information, please emailadmission@learnschoolacademy.com. The admissions team will be happy to discuss your individual circumstances and attempt to reach a solution.

Can a student catch up with missed work if joining later in the term?

It is possible to access the learning resources already covered in the lessons earlier in the term. Students would need to plan to do this in and around their attendance at timetabled lessons.

My son/daughter has health struggles and requires tailored attention. Is this something he/she will receive with online learning or will they be left behind?

One of the many benefits of learning with LEARN School and Academy is the way it allows teachers to deliver tailored education to all learners. Traditional classrooms can be unpredictable in their nature, which is not the case with LEARN School and Academy’s online classrooms. In a mainstream school setting, students who miss lessons due to hospital or doctor’s appointments may find it difficult to catch-up, causing them to fall behind. Every lesson is recorded and stored in the lesson archive, enabling them to catch-up at any point. Plus, students can email their teacher at any time with queries, getting their questions answered without the fear of feeling embarrassed in front of their peers.

Can we get feedback from other students in my country?

Unfortunately, we cannot provide the details of our students and parents without their consent.

Will we receive a ‘transcript’ stating that my child attends LEARN School and Academy?

You won’t receive one automatically – we can however provide a written letter of registration stating that your child is enrolled at LEARN School and Academy – this request will need to be sent to admission@learnschoolacademy.com.
