The Spelmore Institute has day and boarding facilities, and prepares students to sit Cambridge International GCSEs in a nurturing, well-structured environment.
We follow the British Curriculum for Key Stages 1-3 (ages 5-14), then pursue preparations for Cambridge IGCSEs in Key Stage 4 in a range of subjects including the core English (Literature and Language), Mathematics, Sciences, Economics, French, and Geography. Gifted students are encouraged to sit IGCSEs early.
Our Vision is: To inspire future leaders, through holistic education, that champions global enterprise and innovation. We are guided by this vision in everything we do at the school.
We have small class sizes (16-20 maximum), and first-class, interactive teaching by committed and motivated teachers, both UK and locally trained. Our students are also provided with a range of co-curricular options to encourage their love of learning, develop their personal interests, and increase their confidence.
The boarding facilities provide a home-away-from home, with excellent pastoral care and support in a community setting. Boarders gain a wide variety of life skills including independence, self-sufficiency, self-discipline and time-management. Here, your child can develop life-long friendships and thrive in our welcoming environment.
Meals are vegetarian, as part of our wellness policy.
The Spelmore Institute is located in the suburbs of Accra, Ghana- 30 minutes from the Kotoka International Airport.
After the initial inquiry, parents will be invited to bring their wards to sit an Entrance Test for assessment of their ward's year class and learning requirements. The test may include a class room observation activity. There are places for 15-20 students only per class, and the Entrance Test and classroom observation will allow children to be placed in the year class appropriate to their ability and not only to their age.
Parents will also attend a brief interview with members of the Management Team to discuss the ward's needs, and parent and school expectations.
Parents whose wards pass the Entrance Tests and are offered Admission are expected to complete the school's Registration Forms and submit them, and any requested documentation, to the School Administration. Parents must then pay the Admission Fee and the fees for the term.
Fee payment arrangements can be agreed with parents, and scholarships are available for gifted students.
A parental partnership is created in which the parents agree to support their ward's academic development, personal growth and self-discipline in partnership with the school.
The school was conceived in 2015 by homeschooling parents from Ghana, the UK and the Caribbean who wanted a more holistic program of education for their children. One that incorporated yoga, Qigong, music, and a wellness ethos into the every day curriculum.
We formally opened our doors in September 2019.
