We are committed in creating the best minds who are technologically savvy and who can critically think.
We are different. And that’s how we make a difference.

the Circle Kids Learning Programme

This programme is delivered to kids of ages between 8 years and 15 years. In this programme, we teach kids computer coding, robotics, critical thinking skills, writing and speaking skills (especially teaching kids how to write and speak fluent English). Teaching is delivered in a blended fashion, and teaching is led by UK based tutors who join the kids online on a weekly basis.

Learning is delivered through self-paced fun activities. Kids are given thought provoking activities around a learning theme and usually given a week to complete and submit their work online.

Individual feedback is given to every piece of activity the kids submit. As part of the teaching tutors from the UK, join the kids on a weekly via online sessions. Key experts from around the world also join kids online to teach, advise and inspire our kids. For example, we invite internationally accredited scientists, writers and artists to join our kids on a regular basis throughout the programme.

In addition to this, in this programme, we run themed programmes to take our teaching and improve awareness among our kids to one step further. For example, this year the Circle kids on this programme are writing a book about “Life in 2040” which will be published on Amazon.

Here are some sample activities:

Leaders of Tomorrow

This is an exclusive programme and a personal initiative by our President Professor Ugail. In this programme kids who have demonstrated the potential (usually through one of our previous learning programmes or an interview) to succeed at the highest level along with the possession of a supportive environment are selected and invited to enrol. In this programme, kids will learn how to succeed and how to become leaders in their chosen fields. They will learn how to gain the necessary subject knowledge. They will become aware of how the world around them works, and how it shapes over time. They will learn how to think. They will learn how to communicate. They will learn how to network. They will learn how to always present themselves in their best form, even in the most challenging situations. This is an intensive, task and project driven programme.
