FAQ’s

Each child will be individually monitored by teachers, with realistic attainment targets being identified in each subject. These will be accessible on-line. Parents and guardians will also receive termly reports which will provide details of targets met and fresh ones for the term ahead. Parents’ evenings will provide the opportunity for parents and guardians to meet with teachers and discuss the progress of their children.

No. The SVA fees are completely inclusive and transparent. Their affordability is partly due to the fact that the Academy is a not-for-profit project, with capital costs donated which therefore do not need to be recouped through higher fees.

Boarders will share purpose built accommodation in apartments designed for four children. Each hostel – there are two – is managed by senior staff who have responsibility for the safety and security of all boarders. Medical support and security personnel are on site 24 hours a day. The after school programme offers the opportunity for boarders to remain academically or recreationally engaged until the time of the evening meal.

The SVA has been stringent in its selection procedures, having advertised vacancies nationally in the press to attract a broad field of candidates with the expertise we require. Specifically we have recruited a mixture of local and out-of-state teachers who either have experience of – or an aptitude for- teaching an international curriculum using modern styles and methodology.

Yes. In fact there are both Pre-service (prior to the Academy opening) and ongoing In-service professional development programmes. Much of the training is delivered ‘in house’, capitalising on skills present within the teaching faculty. The Academy also employs foreign educationalists to enrich the training programmes. Regardless of the age of the class being taught the teaching approach will be the same – lively, engaging and diverse.

No. The Academy can best assist you if you begin by contacting either the Head of Section – for example the Head of Primary – or the subject teacher if the issue is subject specific. Normally you will receive the guidance and information you need at this stage, however access to the Principal is always open should you need to consult at a higher level.

We believe that both are vital to the development of successful, well-rounded citizens of tomorrow. Of course academic success is imperative, and sporting prowess and engagement will be a positive addition to such success rather than a hindrance. This is why at the SVA we have invested in the finest academic and sporting facilities.

The Academy provides personal careers and higher education guidance throughout the final five years of schooling. University opportunities are considered carefully in collaboration with the family, with the subsequent expert advice helping families to decide on target institutions and career goals. Support is also given for interview technique and the writing of the personal statements so vital to securing admission at the finest universities.

Learning through play in an English medium environment helps very young children feel comfortable and confident with the language very quickly. In most cases children who join the Academy at the age of 3 years will be fluent in spoken English within one year. SVA utilises the most modern methods to ensure that our youngest children are stimulated and inspired. The last thing we wish to do is to stifle their natural spontaneity and creativity, which is why we don’t! Learning through play, outdoor experiences and basic phonics makes sure that our Pre-School classes develop a love of learning which will remain throughout the rest of their education.
