Our Cambridge Programme (Cambridge Pathway)

Cambridge Primary- Stage 1

Our Primary Program is guided by the Cambridge Primary Curriculum aimed at developing young learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. Our curricular and co-curricular activities are planned with a focus on holistic development with an equal emphasis on cognitive socio-emotional and physical skills alongside creative expression. Learning is exploratory and evaluative in nature. Students learn to apply their knowledge and understanding to solve new and unfamiliar problems. There are ample opportunities to work independently or collaboratively and take intellectual risks.

A roadmap to learning at the primary level – With a student-centric approach to imparting knowledge, students learn to imbibe mathematical, language, and scientific skills among many others. Children learn to express their voice in multiple mediums. By encouraging children to explore, experiment and learn independently through activity-based techniques, we seek to equip children with skills in problem-solving, critical analysis and creativity. In addition to integrating formative and summative assessments (Assessment For Learning) to strengthen their learning, portfolios are created to exhibit the student’s developmental milestones.

Ages : 5-11 years | Grades : 1 to 5

Cambridge Lower Secondary (Checkpoint)- Stage 2

The Lower Secondary program is based largely on the Cambridge Lower secondary curriculum, that develops our students into confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged learners. A student at this level will experience ample cognitive stimulus and an extensive co-curricular program. Our co-curricular activities are designed to supplement their curricular learning. They have a choice to learn either Art, Music, Drama or Creative Movement as part of the curriculum.
Every child is encouraged and supported to engage in independent critical thinking and an array of transferable skills that would prepare them for Senior School. Students are encouraged to learn through projects and guided discovery methods, fostering and nurturing their own natural curiosity. Our differentiated classroom and personalised learning methods allow students to take ownership of their learning and progress. This allows every student to develop a voice and agency; the confidence to choose for themselves the subjects for further study in Senior School.

Ages : 11-14 years | Grades : 6 to 8

Cambridge Upper Secondary (IGCSE): Stage 3

In the Senior School, the IGCSE program is geared up with a student centric approach, we aim to foster social-emotional and life skills, thereby preparing them for the next stage of their educational journey. A broad-based curriculum with varied subject choices is offered to match the interests and aspirations of all students. Unusual subject combinations are often allowed to accommodate individual needs. Students are encouraged to make informed decisions in all areas of schooling. Student-led initiatives such as ‘Girl-up’, MUN, and RCP (Responsible Citizenship Programme) are a highlight.
