Big Leaf Foundation

In addition to educational support, we work closely with organisations such as Big Leaf who offer a range of support and projects, encouraging language through social opportunities and addressing social isolation. Please see Big Leaf's website for the activities currently on offer.


Flash Academy

FlashAcademy® EAL is an online learning platform that can be used by schools and individuals at home, to deliver learning for students that don’t have English as their first language. This learning can be accessed by computer, tablet or smartphone and all progress is monitored by the Virtual School to gain valuable insights and raise attainment.

When a UASC arrives in Surrey, Flash Academy will be offered to them as a means of educational support until a school or college place is found and will continue to be available to them to compliment their educational studies.
