THE A&J SCHOOL

COMMUNITY

The A&J School community is comprised of our students, our parents, and our hard-working faculty members and support staff. These individuals come from all over the world. They are all from different backgrounds and have their own unique life experiences, which is what makes our community so vibrant.

FACULTY

We do not have an old historic building. We lack a modern athletics track, nor do we have a state-of-the-art music centre. All we have is our people. All the money we save by not having physical premises, we invest into getting the best educators in the world to be made available to our students.
A traditional school has the best pick of teachers who happen to live in a five-mile radius from the school. In our case, we have no such limitation. We routinely get more than a 100 applications for every vacancy we put out which allows us to recruit some of the best teachers on the planet. 
What’s more, we are a Partnership. Currently eight members of our faculty are Partners and receive a percentage of the profit of the school. Two more faculty members are on a five-year partnership track. Our model is unique. It allows us to attract the best educators and to ensure that everyone is motivated to do the best job possible for our students.
Three members of the Faculty are also currently parents to A&J School pupils which gives us a real-time parental perspective on how we run the school.

SUPPORT STAFF

Our Faculty also consists of a number of hard-working Administrators and Teaching Assistants (TAs). These colleagues are instrumental to the success of our students. We continue to invest into the professional development of all of our faculty and have a yearly budget for training and up-skilling of each one.

STUDENTS

We have students from 25 countries worldwide. Most of our students join A&J School full-time, usually in UK Year 9 at the age of 13. Some, however, join later. We also have a number of part-time students who remain in their bricks-and-mortar schools and join us for targeted academic support, interview preparation, and our famous University Admissions Programme. Part-time students study with us during evenings and weekends outside of their main timetable. 

Our students have a range of interests. Almost all choose to continue their studies after A&J School, and they end up at some of the world’s best universities. The majority of our graduates typically join family businesses, work in big multinational companies, or go into public service. Some establish start-ups or follow careers in the art world or professional sports.

PARENTS

Parents are key to our community because students only fulfil their true potential when the work of A&J School is supported and encouraged by parents. We organise regular events for parents to meet socially around the world. In the past year, we have organised parents-only social lunches in Los Angeles, New York, London, Dubai, Zurich, Istanbul, and New Delhi. Our parents typically fall into one of these categories: entrepreneurs, investors, philanthropists, or accomplished professionals. 
Many of our parents donate internships and work experience opportunities which gives our students hands-on experience in a professional environment. Our parents also contribute to our Pro Bono fund allowing us to provide even more fully-funded places to talented students without the financial means to join A&J School. Finally, some parents give talks to the school through our Speaker Series module and share their experiences, both successes and failures.
