Academic Support Programme (ASP)
Academic Support Programme (ASP) is, as the name implies, designed to provide extra support for our weak students so they can catch up in academics with their peers. Students are placed on the programme whenever their regime, terminal or annual average score falls below our least acceptable average score of 65.00%. If the annual average falls below 50.00%, the student is required to repeat the class or be withdrawn from the school.
The Academic Support Counsellor facilitates the programme in collaboration with several teaching and non-teaching staff. The extra support that students on ASP receive translates to more teaching/learning times provided by subject teachers, additional times for individual study, personalised academic and socio-emotional support by the counsellor and, in general, closer supervision by members of staff. Students remain in the programme until they consistently exceed the minimum acceptable score of 65.00%.
The additional times that students on ASP spend on academics come from times reserved for social and co-curricular activities from which they are required to abstain until their grades improve. Such activities include social, movies, clubs and mid-week games.
