Welcome to Secondary School

Humphrey Luseno - Head of Secondary

Welcome to Premier academy Secondary section where we churn dreams into realities. At Premier, every individual child is a unique asset with a potential which is an opportunity for us to spark off. We believe that quality education is a means to an end alongside values as the world now is not merely interested in papers but the person and meritocracy is replacing mediocrity.

The secondary school admits 12 year olds in year 7 and 17 year olds in ‘A’ level. In this section, students are meticulously guided in consultation with parents/guardians, on subject choice in order to reap maximum benefit from their learning. During the Ninth Year, choices are made for IGCSE subjects. With many children finding the amount of work involved in these subjects greater than in the previous classes, they are encouraged to make a wide selection of subjects.

Our Science Laboratories are spacious and well equipped with modern science apparatus to enable them carry out any experiments to supplement classroom theory work. Similarly, the Computer Science center ensures that each student realizes the place of Information Technology in the dynamic world giving them an opportunity to utilize it to their own advantage.  

Courses range from introductory work in the First Year to project work in year Thirteen, and from word processing to Information Handling. Premier Academy today has one of the most modern and better-equipped computer laboratories in the country.

For some students, the Sixth Form becomes a time for total concentration. Helping children to think and organize their studies for themselves is an important priority for successful studies at this advanced and demanding level and beyond. The Secondary Library plays a vital role in this. The Library has generously proportioned study carrels and an informal area where pupils can keep abreast with the latest journals, magazines and newspapers. It is adequately staffed with professionally qualified librarians who give guidance on the way to use books and the library itself and work closely with teachers in striving to ensure that the library fulfills its role as the
intellectual heart of the school.

The success of the school’s approach is reflected by the highly disciplined and responsible graduates alongside the very high percentage of passes obtained in IGCSE and GCE examination each year and the high proportion of top grades. Three-quarters of our Sixth Form students go on to pursue academic degrees, with a great majority of the remainder obtaining professional qualification by direct entry into their chosen careers.

We promote a holistic approach to education through academic, extracurricular and pastoral programmes which take into consideration the diverse cultural backgrounds of the students. Besides we have continuous professional development programmes for our staff that enable them adapt emerging pedagogical approaches that match the changing trends and ensure that learning is fun, meaningful, well enriched and productive to the learners.

Academics

It’s my pleasure to say that at Premier Academy we ride the crest! According to Napoleon Hill, Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carries with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit. Indeed, with the abrupt closure of schools, we were between a rock and a hard place; either to close shop and wait or to act proactively and ensure learning continues seamlessly. We adopted the latter.  The board of Trustees and Management’s conscientious leadership coupled with passionate staff have been instrumental in successful implementation of virtual learning.

Covid-19 pandemic has therefore been a double edged sword: other than missing out on the convenience of physical learning, we have been able to tap into the bank of resources that continue to augment the hard copy resources.  In the words of John Wooden “Things turn out the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” Premier has been alive to this fact and with regards to virtual learning; the sky is no longer the limit!

In the words of Henry Ford, When everything seems to be against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.  Our star has risen with the turbulent winds. We have not only engaged with our students in the examinable subjects but also skill based disciplines; ranging from cookery, drawing, music and drama to name a few. These have immensely helped alleviate the negative pressures on students that could accompany the present moments. We hope that learning experience is enjoyable and rewarding to both the teacher and the learners.
