Academic Performance – High Performance Learning (HPL)
It is our belief that every child is capable of achieving success and can live a life of opportunities and fulfillment regardless of his or her starting point. Considering the uniqueness of each child and by reimaging learning styles to suit each student, we remove the barriers perceived as impossible, and make it possible. It is a combined effort in equipping every student with advanced cognitive skills, essential values, attitudes, and attributes for lifelong success. Student well-being and self-esteem are nurtured resulting in students becoming more confident and engaged in their learning with a more optimistic learning culture.
Readiness to University
The transition from High School to University is a major one. A TBAC pass-out is right out well-equipped and ready to step into the university with the set of required academic skills, behaviors, knowledge, and real-world skills. Counselors and Teachers play a key role in making this happen, to ensure that students find academic success in universities. We prepare our students to be college and career-ready with proper skilled workforce that meets the demands of the 21st Century.
We believe in celebrating diversity. Creating a multicultural awareness in the classrooms encourages acceptance and helps prepare students to thrive in an exponentially diverse world, to adapt to an evolving world and to embrace those different from themselves. 70+ different nationalities, all under one roof, all as one. Education today is helping to create more culturally responsive students. With the rise of globalization, it is the need of the hour to adapt and be able to mingle with people from different cultures. Our students are trained to be empathetic, have a better understanding and acceptance of people, become more open-minded and socially adjustable human being.

The Bloomington Academy School is committed to serving its community. It recognizes the multi-cultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has, in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalization by those wishing to influence them unduly, or illegally whether that be by deliberate act or their own background. It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. TBAC is dedicated to preparing pupils for the next stage in life beyond the curriculum and ensures that it promotes and reinforces British Values to all its pupils.
Our aim is to inculcate in our pupils, all aspects of life which do not conflict with any of the 5 British Values as set out below. The five British Values are:
- The Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect
- Tolerance of those of different Faiths and Beliefs
Processes of democracy are taught by way of actions; all classes follow class rules, during group lessons pupils make choices about activities and the most popular is encouraging responsibility and respect among peers.
Rule of Law
High expectations govern the classes, learning environments and wider school community and these expectations are consistently adhered to and monitored, to improve pupils’ behavior and conduct through bespoke programs. Clear consequences are in place when rules are broken. The Secondary and Sixth Form curricula, where appropriate, include some experience of the law. All pupils leave school, having undertaken the ASDAN Citizenship program.
Pupils make individual choices within a safe, secure, and supportive environment. Pupils are encouraged to speak up their individual needs.
Reinforced by the positive role models and interaction of staff at all levels and visiting members of the community, school emphasizes the core values. Pupils frequently participate in fundraising events for local, national, and international charities, through school-focused charity events.
Tolerance of different Faiths and Beliefs
Regular visits, themed activities and sometimes visitors including parents support the children’s learning about faiths and beliefs. Our PSHE / SMSC / RE work celebrates elements of culture and festivals across all faiths represented within our School.
Beyond the Curriculum
Teaching and learning are not about staying within the four walls of the classrooms, being confined to the syllabus, or sticking just to the source material provided. The world keeps getting more competitive day by day and today education is all about ‘going beyond the curriculum’, taking teaching and learning to a different dimension altogether! We believe in preparing our students for the competitive world outside. When it comes to providing our students with an enriching educational experience, we at The Royal Academy go beyond the curriculum, inspiring and encouraging our students with engaging, interesting, and research-based age-appropriate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) activities. It is all about presenting challenges through critical thinking and helping students to come up with their own solutions, in every aspect of school life.
‘Inclusion’ in education is that all students are given equal opportunities to education and learning and that is what our school aims for. We aim to ensure educational benefits for mainstream students as well as special education students, with the more able students serving as peer mentors and the less able students as a source of motivation for the mainstream students. Here the students learn to empathize with each other. In our campus, the feeling of being included is not just limited to physical or cognitive disabilities but includes a range of qualities such as language, culture, gender, and other forms of human differences. We ensure that no one is left behind, on the contrary everyone is made to feel valued and celebrated.
Pedagogy, the teaching strategies used by teachers to teach theoretically as well as practically. The Teachers plan the lessons in advance, inclusive of all factors of learning suitable for all learning styles, essential for students to have meaningful classroom and out of class experiences. Pedagogy aims on building upon the previous knowledge of students and further working on the developing the skills and attitudes of the learners. Our pedagogical strategies enable students to grasp a thorough understanding of the topics taught and to apply them in daily life situations outside school. It includes the constructivist approach, collaborative, integrative, reflective, and inquiry-based learning, all the components of the latest educational trend.
