Parents/Guardians: Welcome to COLLS

Cambridge On-Line Learning Support

~ An initiative of The Academy Hout Bay ~

 

Complete support, any time, any where. 

The Academy offers a unique online, blended Learning environment to provide Distance Learning Support to both our own students and HOME SCHOOLED students . We finally have the appropriate technology to deliver effective teaching and learning online. The Academy has developed a unique blend of sound traditional teaching methodologies with the latest Virtual Learning Environments and Learning Management Systems. This way our students can access their lessons online, with engaging content tailored to the various syllabus requirements, where ever they are. This also allows our students to keep up with work missed through absence, review topics they found challenging and even move ahead to topics of particular interest.

Parents can use this system to receive full support for HOMESCHOOLING or COTTAGE SCHOOLS.

Featuring:

  • Blended learning: Video, audio, images and text are combined to reach all learning styles.
  • Content: Carefully selected and moderated to cover all syllabus requirements
  • Assessments: Adapted from GCSEs and A Level Examination past papers
  • Feedback: Immediate, summative feedback on quizzes and personalised, formative feedback on written assignments
  • Progress reports and identification of areas of weakness
  • LIVE tutorial support for specific needs
