Programmes of Study
Our programmes are in line with our mission to ‘guide students in the process of ‘learning to learn’, facilitating their development into inquisitive, active and open-minded students, capable of working independently and in a spirit of harmony and co-operation alongside others’.
IB PRIMARY YEARS PROGRAMME
Ages 2 to 5
In our Early years department, play-based learning helps children develop their social, communication and cognitive skills. Play, as an act of inquiry, is driven by the children's need to understand the world around them. Our Early Years department - with the exception of Nursery - follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.
IB Primary Years Programme
Ages 5 to 11
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is recognised worldwide as one of the most advanced international programmes for elementary schools. Our students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 follow the PYP. The programme focuses on international mindedness and develops children’s academic, social and emotional well being.
Ages 11 to 14
Whilst having two elements of the IB curriculum firmly in place in the Elementary and High Schools (PYP and DP) we have decided against the full implementation of the IB Middle Years Programme. Our Middle School curriculum integrates international best practice. It is formally assessed using Cambridge Checkpoint, a globally recognised benchmark.
Ages 14 to 16
The Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for Grade 10 students presents thorough preparation for IB Diploma level study.
IB Diploma programme
Ages 16 to 18
The IB Diploma is a two-year curriculum leading to a qualification respected as a means to university entrance worldwide. It encourages students to become active, compassionate and reflective life-long learners and to develop attributes of the Learner Profile.
