Cambridge Assessment International Education (Grades 6-10)

The Middle School curriculum focusses on core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science to prepare students for secondary education. The goal at this stage is to engage students in learning while building character and confidence. The academic programme is designed to develop skills in critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication, problem solving, working with others and developing citizenship and leadership qualities. At this stage, students are exposed to specialist teachers for all subjects. This ensures they not only develop their knowledge and skills but are also prepared for the rigour of the next Cambridge stage leading to IGCSEs. 

We offer the following subjects in the Middle School.

For Grades 9-10, we use Cambridge Upper Secondary curriculum. The focus is on broad and balanced study across a wide range of subjects using learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning. Assessments include written, oral, coursework and practicals and students take the International General Certificate of Secondary Education ( IGCSE ) exams at the end of this stage.

The following IGCSE subjects are mandatory for all students:

  • English – choice between English as First Language or English as Second Language
  • Second Language – choice between Hindi, French.
  • Mathematics – choice between Core or Extended
  • Science – choice between Physics, Chemistry and Biology (each of the individual Science subjects are available as Core or Extended)

Students must choose a minimum of 3 subjects from the following options:

  • Computer Science
  • Mathematics
  • Economics
  • Business Studies
  • Accounting 
  • Global Perspectives
  • Environmental Management
  • Art & Design

The choice and combination of subjects should be based on a fair understanding of the purpose which can include personal interest, use value of subject for university admissions and higher education courses, future career planning or aspiration for Cambridge ICE Award (https://www.cambridgeinternational.org/programmes-and-qualifications/cambridge-upper-secondary/cambridge-ice/).
