The Young Studio expands offering with accredited online British learning, in partnership with King’s InterHigh
The Young Studio, a Dubai-based online provider of enrichment and academic programmes, is widening its offering with a full British curriculum delivered completely online in partnership with King’s InterHigh.
Two years ago, educationalist Jimi Kalyani set up The Young Studio with the mission of helping children and young people find their spark and uniqueness, motivating them to nurture it. The online centre has since been working to support its students as they develop their knowledge, communication skills, and language, with supplementary enrichment classes taking place after school and on weekends.
The Young Studio already has its own team of teachers and mentors who deliver online classes in Speech and Drama, English Enrichment, Creative Writing, IELTS Exam Prep, Mathematics, Chess, Contemporary Art, and Futuristic Skills Training. Parents drawn to the studio are typically professionals and business owners in search of high-quality educational opportunities that will help their children compete and succeed on the global stage.
Now, students at The Young Studio can also access a full British education as part of their learning. Recognising a need for affordable and high-quality international education, The Young Studio has partnered with King’s InterHigh to broaden its overall programme, completing their students’ personal and academic development.
The Young Studio’s learners access live, online classes from their homes in the U.A.E, each lesson taught by expert King’s InterHigh teachers. The students’ timetable operates on Gulf Standard Time, with classes taught between 8:30am and 4:30pm GST, Sunday to Thursday (*School week subject to change in accordance with the new working week in the U.A.E.)
In the Primary and Lower Secondary years, learners follow the English National Curriculum. In the final four Secondary years, they then study for the internationally recognised IGCSE and A Level programmes, accredited by reputable awarding bodies Edexcel and Cambridge International Examinations. These courses prepare students to become independent thinkers with a global perspective, and the qualifications they receive upon completing examinations are recognised and valued by all prestigious universities across the world.
Mr. Gareth Lucas-Howells, Head of Education Partnerships, King’s InterHigh, commented: “We are delighted to support The Young Studio to expand its offering to children and young people in the UAE. The partnership will allow us to deliver a world-class British international education to families alongside the enrichment programmes expertly delivered by The Young Studio.”
Jimi Kalyani, Founder of The Young Studio added: “Studying in the UK is every teen’s dream. When I learned that we can offer the experience and the quality of an authentic British education to anyone and everyone regardless of distance or borders, just a click away, I was thrilled and immediately thought of extending this opportunity for our TYS [The Young Studio] families in the UAE and other GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council] countries. I strongly believe the opportunity of partnership with King’s InterHigh will open doors for a lot of young minds who will get an international standard of learning and developing themselves holistically as well as grow as global citizens.”
