ACADEMIC CONSULTANTS

A new school with high academic aspirations needs to have proven subject specialists to help with recruitment and advice. Likewise, a new publishing technology needs expertise to help commission and refine content. We are recruiting some the most distinguished teachers in the UK to help us in these areas. All are connected to top institutions and schools, but it is important to acknowledge that Scholar 6 itself is not endorsed by those schools.

EXTRA-CURRICULAR CONSULTANTS

We are determined to make a dynamic extra-curricular programme work even without elaborate facilities of our own – our commitment to this goal is reflected in the calibre of our advisors.

More about Scholar6

Scholar 6 will launch its first college in London in September 2020, followed by three additional colleges within the capital before expanding into other major UK cities.

But from early 2019 we will be developing Brillder™ content so that the first school goes live with our technology already in place

Investment Opportunity

Invest in Scholar 6 and be part of the transformation of sixth form education.

Scholar 6 will be the first sixth form to integrate its own ‘blended’ learning technology on a truly cross-curricular scale. It will be the model to demonstrate how teaching and learning can use technology to become both more effective and more cost-efficient.
