Columbus Club for Junior Learners & Teenagers
Columbus Club was set up for children and teenagers to explore their full potential and experience success and enjoyment within the academic, literary, creative, sporting and culinary arenas. We provide an Academic Programme alongside our Easter & Summer Camps for students aged (3-12).
We also provide a Teenage Programme during the Summer months of June, July and August which includes an Academic Emphasis as well as providing Courses/Workshops suitable for the (12-17) age group.
Our focus is on the individual and on his/her development. Our learner centred approach ensures that each person receives the maximum amount of time and attention. We also provide 1:1 private tuition.
The philosophy which underpins Columbus Club is similar to that of the explorer Christopher Columbus. His life focused on exploring new possibilities that saw him make such unique and life-changing discoveries. Similarly, Columbus Club encourages all learners to travel on their individual journeys of discovery and guides them along the way within a stimulating, caring and professional learning environment.
Columbus Club is focused on encouraging children and teenagers to explore their full potential by providing them with numerous classes, courses, workshops and camps.
Columbus Academy provides an Academic Programme on a daily basis during the Easter & Summer holidays. Columbus Club provides children and teenagers with as many opportunities as possible in the academic and creative worlds to develop existing skills and to explore numerous other possibilities including new learning opportunities especially within the world of technology, culinary and sport.
Most children will benefit from a term of maths tuition. S/he may benefit from one to one private tuition in a subject s/he may find difficult or by attending a creative writing class where the student learns to structure his/her ideas and write well written stories. Columbus Club provides young people with the opportunities to do this during the Easter and Summer holidays.
Our Creative emphasis is apparent in the wide range of activities and themes provided in our twelve different camps which take place weekly for the duration of the Easter and Summer holidays.
Columbus Club caters for all ability levels and all personality types working with each learner in achieving his/her full potential.
