About Summit Saturday School
Summit Saturday School is a private school which is open every Saturday during termtime. Summit is a formal school, with qualified teachers, a Principal, Deputy Head and the other formalities of a week-day school.The founder and Principal is Burgette Stewart whose passion for children and learning led her to establish the school in the 1990’s has seen the lives of hundreds of students transformed by being at Summit.
The school’s motto is “we give you the tools to climb mountains!” That is exactly what Summit does by empowering its pupils with excellent teaching and the confidence to excel in examination as well as in their lives. By the time students leave Summit they are confident and highly motivated.
Class size at Summit is small. This is for the comfort of the teacher and to allow every pupil in the class to be engaged and participate fully. Regular monitoring of our students’s progress and communication with parents is an important aspect of our work at Summit Saturday School.
When parents apply to Summit they are invited to bring their child for an assessment. The results can sometime be surprising. The results of the assessment provide valuable information for the teachers. This allows our teachers to prepare an appropriate study plan and allocate the student to the correct class.
Teachers at Summit are qualified, hold a degree in the subject they teach and are specialist in that area. Every teacher has a current CRB, many years experience and a proven track record in raising ability.
