With a focus on habits of mind and nurturing the skills which students will need to succeed in their futures, entrepreneurialism, project planning and implementation, collaboration and leadership are all taught alongside the more traditional academic subjects. Students in Grades 9 and 10 follow the IGCSE programme and with a combination of compulsory and optional courses, they are prepared for either the High School Diploma or IBDP course.
For students joining us in Grade 10, we usually recommend a specialized pre-IB course. This is a reduced programme of IGCSE subjects with a strong focus on the core curricula of English, Maths and Science. This provides a sound base from which to approach study in the Senior section of the school. As with our two-year programme, Sport, Outdoor Education and Habits of Mind are all given time and space within students’ weekly programmes.
