The complete Cambridge curriculum starting from Early Years through to the Advanced Level

Westlake International School’s teaching strategies combine international best practices and effective technology learning tools to ensure that all students are engaged in their learning. Their classroom practices focus on the development of the core 21st century skills of collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and communication, to ensure that their students are future ready. The school subscribes to Education Perfect for Modern Foreign Languages, English and Science.

Education Perfect is supporting Westlake International’s School to prepare students for the future by:

  • Providing content that relates to life outside the classroom Empowering students to manage their own learning Catering for differentiated learning abilities and styles
  • Supporting traditional and hybrid classrooms
  • Freeing up teacher time to focus on students individually

The Challenge

Westlake International School was seeking to replace textbooks with a more interactive experience for students. The school wanted to broaden curriculum content, personalise learning, minimise manual assessment, improve individual progress tracking, and extend interaction beyond the classroom.

Feedback from the Modern Foreign Languages Department

“Education Perfect motivates my students learning while having fun at the same time. The ready-made content saves me a lot of time preparing assignments. I can create my own smart lessons which align to my subject syllabus. EP is really a great teaching and learning platform!” – Ms Loh

“EP is a very useful tool to help students improve their vocabulary and essay writing skill.” – Ms S00

“As a language teacher, Education Perfect’s pronunciation practice and language exercises are a gamechanger. My students’ language skills have improved significantly.” – Ms Lee

“Using smart learning that adjusts to each student and real-time information, EP made learning more interesting and helped students do better in their studies.” – Ms Kok

A Solution for Every Department

English – Interactive teaching and learning

The English department are the most active users of Education Perfect at Westlake International School. Yao-Jin Choong, Senior Head Teaching & Learning recalls, “Most of our lessons were heavily textbook, exercise-worksheet based; EP provided us with a different platform for the students to learn and have fun. EP was a breath of fresh air for the students, moving them away from the idea of just writing with pen and paper to listening and speaking activities.”

The teachers integrated EP into the Learning Management System, sharing assignments with students via Google Classroom, “Students were engaged by the interactivity and happy that they could work at their own pace. Teachers appreciated how EP breaks down multiple aspects of the language into mini chapters or sequences that the students can focus on. They monitored student progress and worked on students’ strengths and weaknesses.”

Mandarin & Malay – personalised learning

The Mandarin & Malay Departments’ decision to adopt EP was motivated by a desire for more effective, personalised learning. EP’s promise of ready-made content, automation, and tailored analysis addressed this need and enhanced the learning experience significantly. Mrs Loh, Mandarin teacher, explains, “EP benefited our Chinese teaching with ready-made resources saving us time, and the personalised smart lessons aligned perfectly with the syllabus. Students benefited from accessing EP at home, enriching in-class discussions. EP’s analytics dashboard enabled progress tracking, further enhancing learning outcomes.”

Science – differentiation

Yao-Jin Choong identifies differentiation as the key issue for the Science Department, “Teachers often provided students of different abilities the same worksheet. As a result, weaker students showed a lack of interest in the subject whilst at the same time stronger students felt bored and unchallenged.”

The teachers immediately saw the potential of EP, “Teachers could easily create smart lessons and assessments by selecting the ready-made content. Within the smart lessons they selected certain questions to be optional, allowing more able students to go deeper whilst less able students could learn at their own pace and self-check their answers easily with the help of the sample answers provided.”

Differentiation was further supported by the quality of the content and the level of interactivity, “EP made science more accessible to all students as it covers knowledge beyond the classroom that is related to real life and also provides a variety of engaging assessments formats.”

EP is now firmly embedded in the Science Department as a multipurpose tool, “They use it as a starter for students to learn independently and actively before lessons, after learning to check the students’ progress, and for revision material.”

Inspiring best practice

Yao-Jin Choong believes that teachers across all departments have been enthused by the integration of EP, “EP supports educators with a community, best practices, and training, keeping them updated on trends. Webinars, virtual communities, as well as EP’s time-saving features made teaching easier and effective.”

She notes that the teachers particularly appreciated the newsletter for teachers offering hints and tips on pedagogy and edtech, “EP has truly inspired best practice for independent learning and flipped classroom.”

4th at the EP Global Learning Festival

EP host a range of engaging competitions for students every year, giving students the opportunity to take part in exciting events, and compete with peers in different locations around the world.

“Our students love the global competitions. We have small groups of students who are very competitive meaning we often have a few Gold, Emerald and even Elite winners for each competition. Most recently we achieved 4th in the global ranking!”
