PEARSON i - LOWER SECONDARY PROGRAMME GRADES 7 AND 8
MATHS AND ENGLISH AND SCIENCE TO SUPPLEMENT IMYC.
In order to be able to fully utilise the outstanding opportunities the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) students need to have strong English and Mathematics skills and knowledge. Therefore we complement the IMYC programme by implementing the ‘ilowersecondary’ curriculum from Pearson in English and Mathematics. We also check all of the science objectives are covered int eh IMYC so at times will do additional Science units to ensure thorough coverage. The students will utilise the skills and knowledge developed in English and Mathematics in their IMYC enquiry-based topics. Links are made to the key concepts to enable the students to develop deeper understanding of concepts and enquiry ideas being explored. The skills and knowledge acquired in English and Maths are vital across the curriculum. This robust, rigorous and creative approach enables our students to be extremely well situated for future learning and leads up nicely for hte IGCSE subjects they will study in Grades 9 and 10.
Additionally there are specialist Teachers in the areas of Art, Music, Physical Education.
Expatriate students can choose 2 additional subjects in grades 7 and 8 to study, national students have 1 lesson for an optional subject.
