Learn better. Do better. Be better.
Blooms Academy offers classes in Chemistry and English. These subjects are complementary and offer students a good foundation in learning and coping with the O-levels examinations and beyond. There are also plans to offer classes in Mathematics and other science subjects when suitably-qualified tutors are recruited.
The focus of Blooms Academy is thus to develop the whole child and prepare students for the future through honing cognitive abilities that are in line with 21st Century Competencies. Blooms Academy’s teaching philosophy is inspired by Howard Gardner’s 5 Minds for the Future:
The Disciplinary Mind — Students at Blooms Academy will have mastery of major schools of thought, including Science, Mathematics and English. We believe that mastery in these subjects forms the foundation for our students to do well in other arenas. Blooms Scholars who attain achievements in other domains and for their talents will be recognised by the Academy.
The Synthesizing Mind — Blooms Academy develops our scholars’ ability to integrate ideas from different disciplines or spheres into a coherent whole such that learning for a subject supports the overall development of the mind and learning for all subjects.
The Creating Mind — With the capacity to uncover and clarify new problems, questions, and phenomena, Blooms Scholars will be able to apply learnt concepts to challenging questions of a different context.
The Respectful Mind — Learning at Blooms Academy takes place in a small group so that students develop an awareness of and appreciation for differences among human beings and human groups. Cooperative learning takes place in our classrooms and learning is thus multiplied.
The Ethical Mind — Blooms Academy believes that the fulfillment of one’s responsibilities as a student and as a citizen is important in developing servant leaders of the 21st Century. We model this through participation in community activities and also through our Financial Assistance Schemes for needy students. We believe that no child should be denied of academic support because of financial constraints. Please speak to us if you are in this situation.
Learning at Blooms Academy takes place in a lecture-tutorial format that is used in many schools. The small class sizes at The Academy ensures that our scholars receive more individualised attention and makes it easier for them to ask questions and clarify their doubts in class.
