Newark School is an international, independent school with a student cohort hailing from over 46 different countries. In light of this, our school prides itself in the fact that our teachers are able to cater for children who are not English speakers yet whilst also catering for those who are, whilst integrating children who come from different countries together using various teaching methodologies such as the inverted classroom approach, CLIL, story telling and use of the emergent curriculum.
In view of our student cohort our classes are quite small when compared to other national schools as they can cater for a maximum of 18 children to ensure that all the children benefit have sufficient support by the teacher for the creation of an individual educational plan.
Newark School is an English-speaking school following the national curriculum framework as stipulated by the Ministry (MEYR).
Children in our primary classes (year 1-4) and lower middle school (year 5-6) have lessons in the following subjects: Maths, English, Science, Social Studies, Maltese, Religion or Ethics, ICT, Art, Expressive Arts and Physical Education.
For the older children (upper middle (year 7 – 8) and senior school (year 9-11)) they will be expected to follow the following subjects: Maths, English, English Literature, ICT, Social Studies, PSCD, Ethics, Science (year 7 and yr 8) or Physics (year 9 – year 11), Italian OR French (both mandatory in year 7 and year 8) and Chemistry + Biology OR Business Studies + Accounts, physical education and expressive art.
Classes at Newark run from 7.45am until 13.30pm for primary and 13.50pm for secondary students and children have a 20 minute break at around 10.30am.
In light of the above Newark is committed to sharing its knowledge with teachers who come from different educational institutions and backgrounds and we have created a job shadowing programme for both students and teachers.
A teacher job shadowing programme is generally a week long programme (Monday – Friday) unless requested otherwise by the sending institution or teacher. A typical job shadowing programme will be as follows:
The first session at the school shall be with the Head of School where teachers will be discussing the educational system in Malta, the national curriculum framework, how our school operates and other educational matters.
Following this meeting teachers will be assigned classes for them to start the job shadowing. In between the classes teachers will have the opportunity to meet and discuss educational methodologies with our teachers and meet with the Head of School once again if required.
During your programme we will be looking into the following:
- Subjects taught at Newark
- Attendance plan
- Classroom materials and methodologies used
- Cultural activities
- Applied programmes to achieve better results in class
- Educational programmes
- Technological resources
- Extra curricular activities
The cost of a teacher job shadowing programme is eur150 per teacher per week.
Moreover, our school has created two types of student job shadowing programmes as per the plan hereunder:
Student job shadowing programme: standard programme Eur125 per student and teacher (minimum group of 10 students – prices may vary for groups of less than 10 stuents)
