Curricula

Pre-school

In our Early Years Classes, the EYFS Curriculum is followed blended with Jolly phonics program. All areas of learning and development are important and interconnected.

Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These prime areas are:

  • communication and language
  • personal, social and emotional development ; and
  • physical development

The three prime areas are strengthened and applied through the other four specific areas. The specific areas are:

  • literacy;
  • mathematics;
  • understanding the world; and
  • expressive arts and design.

Primary

The primary curriculum has at its heart the development of core subjects (Mathematics, English and Science).  The skills acquired are transferable in other learning contexts and subjects, alongside developing the attributes of our children to be confident, active learners and responsible global citizens.

AIS curriculum is based upon the Cambridge International Curriculum but includes additional learning opportunities that we plan for all our pupils to enhance extend and boost the curriculum. We do this through club activities, sports, outdoor learning, social responsibility, adapting the topics taught and an extensive co-curricular programme. Our clubs includes Cookery, Aerobics, Journalism, Creative Arts, Drama, Spelling Bee, Environment and Sanitation.

At grade 6 our students sit their first Checkpoint Assessment before getting ushered in secondary.

Lower secondary Grade 7-8

At this stage our students follow CIC that ensures key skills and competencies are developed. Opportunities for the development of skills such as leadership, problem solving, collaboration and enquiry are built into the curriculum and enhanced by a wide variety of co-curricular programmes. Since the journey to IGCSE begins here, our students have the advantage of exposure to various subjects that they can choose from for IGCSE apart from the three core subjects(Mathematics, English and Science)

Grade 9-10 (IGCSE)

Here,  students study the subjects selected for the IGCSE examinations, usually taken at the end of Grade 8. Pupils are encouraged to study a broad range of subjects, so enabling a wide choice of career. These examinations are recognised across the world and are of considerable interest to university admissions officers.

A personalised approach allows pupils to choose subjects that best fit their strengths and career hopes. Students are able to sit examinations early, or to study additional subjects, where appropriate. Throughout the IGCSE course, the pupils are supported by expert staff and offered a range of extra curricular activities designed to develop personal skills.

A-level

Each pupil chooses between 3 and 5 subjects that interest them and are related to their career aspirations, to study in depth. The two year A-Level course is currently divided into an AS-Level course that is studied in Grade 11 and ends in AS-Level examinations and then an A2 course that is studied in Grade 12 and ends in A2 examinations. A-Levels are academic qualifications recognised throughout the world and have the advantage that the student can focus on areas of strength and interest.
