Mission Statement 

Our school is a private education centre, which offers an alternative to large mainstream schools.

Our aim is to provide an environment which is conducive to independent learning, in line with U.K. educational philosophy of constructivism and methodologies based on blended learning; a place where students are engaged and inspired.

As a multi-denominational, co-educational school, we encourage all our students to achieve their full potential, both educationally and personally.

We do this by creating a caring and happy environment, where our dedicated teachers can give expert, individual attention to all students, across the widest range of subjects available anywhere on the coast.

Ethos

Most schools restrict a student's choice of subjects by placing them into option blocks. At Emerald Sixth Form, we focus on providing the subjects which the students want to study.

We have hugely experienced teachers from a range of international backgrounds, who can inspire our students to perform beyond their expectations in very small classes, normally 1 to 10 or often fewer.

Our students benefit from

  • constant academic mentoring​.

  • continuous pastoral care.

  • study skill seminars.

  • information literacy sessions.

  • extra English language from our TEFL teacher.

May 2022

Last day of term and nearly the summer holidays. After a fantastic day out at the water park in Torremolinos yesterday, Year 10 exercise their artistic talents and business acumen with an innovative invention - the beer shade.

Craig intends to take the invention to Dragons' Den to get financing for mass production.

Some of us are a little dubious!

Graduation 2022

After school on Thursday 5th May, we celebrated the graduation of the class of 2022.

Parents and students congregated in the study hall for some short speeches and presentations, before each student received their Graduation Certificate and had their photographs taken.

Afterwards we all enjoyed a wide variety of international cuisine, very kindly donated by parents and students.

Good luck to the class of 2022!

April 2022

On Tuesday 12th April, all of Emerald's Science students spent the day at Castellar Zoo, an interactive animal sanctuary. 

Throughout the two-hour guided tour, students learnt about the numerous species they encountered, including several that were endangered and close to extinction.  They even got the chance to get close up to many of them; such as Mango the Lemur, Campion the Eagle, snakes, goats and many more. 

The students also gained insight into the importance of conservation and how zoo’s contribute largely to this.

 

We all say a huge thank you to Castellar Zoo and Anabelle, our guide, for making it such an interesting and educational trip.

End Of Term Fun & Games

To finish the term with some festive fun, a number of Christmassy activities and competitions were organised by Claire, Craig, Charles M and others.

First was a cut-throat table-tennis competition, fiercely fought, but eventually won by Charles M.

This was followed by creative activities, involving making Christmas decorations out of recycled materials.

And downstairs was the tallest Christmas tree competition.

There were also some delicious cookies baked as well.

The students were dismissed at lunchtime to enjoy a well-earned Christmas break.

Secret Santa.

 

Continuing our celebration of the festive season, the students enjoyed exchanging presents anonymously with a Secret Santa, after a pizza-fest at lunchtime.

Also, the prize for the best Christmas cake was awarded to Georgina, Natalie and Sofia.

15 December 2021

Christmas came early for Emerald Sixth Form students.

 

To celebrate the festive season and the end of their mock exams, our students went to visit the wonderful Chocolate Factory in Mijas, where they learnt about the chocolate making process.

Each individual student and accompanying member of staff made their own selection of chocolate bonbons, chocolate bars and chocolate drinks, combining different types of chocolates with a wide range of fruity and sweet edible decorations. 

All left the chocolate factory with their own sweet creations and with their heads filled with sweet memories and the satisfaction of having learnt something new.

Emerald Sixth Form is thankful to all the staff at the Mijas Chocolate factory for such an exciting morning of fun and cooperative learning.
