ENGLISH AS SECOND LANGUAGE
This curriculum develops learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English. It has been developed in conjunction with Cambridge English Language Assessment and is based on the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), used across the world to map learners’ progress in English.
The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: number, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.
This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning, investigating, recording and analyzing data. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum.

CBSE curriculum trains the learners to be confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and intellectually engaged. It encourages and incorporates investigative approach which develops learners’ knowledge, understanding and skills and their ability to perform to the maximum as an individual and also as a part of a team.
Each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback. The feedback report shows how a learner has performed in relation to the curriculum, their learning group, the whole school, and against all learners who have taken tests in that series around the world.
Strong stress is laid on application based learning and this provides valuable educational experience for the students and rewards them for positive achievement for what they know, understand and can do rather than penalize them for what they do not know or get wrong.
Good IGCSE grades count towards entry to universities and colleges around the world.
