Course Summary

Oxford Royale Academy’s Academic Discovery Plus Programme is one of its most popular junior courses, offering younger students the chance to investigate key questions through a combination of fascinating classes and exciting practical workshops.

The investigation of a key question throughout the course ensures the programme is structured and that students can enhance their researching and planning skills. Practical sessions will maximise engagement levels and encourage students to formulate their own opinions, an important and transferable skill.

Our Academic Discovery Plus Programme offers students aged 10-12 the opportunity to live and study in a top UK boarding school.


What to Expect from the Academic Discovery Plus Programme

Rather than focusing on learning facts, the goal of this course is to enable pupils to achieve higher-order outcomes by extracting information and applying skills in multiple contexts. Lessons will involve pitched debates and all students will conclude their course with an assessed presentation.

Each student will have the option to enrol in either the Arts or STEM stream of the course for each week and this choice will decide which key question they will investigate for that week.
