Grade 8 is an important ‘transitus’ year, a year of important change and development, during which an assessment is made of the best curriculum options for each child to study at IGCSE level when he or she enters Grade 9.

It is a year during which students adjust to the imminent challenges of higher secondary. The academy will make a firm recommendation to parents regarding which subjects their child should study in Grade 9. All studies will be based in a UK International Examinations strand. This recommendation will be based on the child’s academic performance as well as his/her preferred style of learning.
Any early indications of higher education and/or career prospects will also be taken into consideration.

This is a time when the child, the teachers and the parents work together to create the best learning programme for Grades 9 and 10.

During Grades 6, 7 and 8 children will be taught by specialist teachers. Three main subjects, English (Language and Literature), Science and Mathematics will take up approximately 50% of available curriculum time, with Social Science (History & Geography), Hindi, Gujarati*, ICT/Computer Science, The Arts, Physical Education and Sports, and Social Studies (including aspects of Business Studies and Economics) also being taught.

There will be opportunities to study additional languages, for example Sanskrit.

Personal and Health Education will also be taught, which will include basic information about educational and career-based pathways as well as Life Skills.

Each class will have a designated Tutor, who will be responsible for overall academic support, counselling and pastoral care.

All students will be expected to participate in social and community programmes which will have an altruistic, charitable character and which will help develop well-rounded and responsible citizens of tomorrow.

All students will be expected to participate in after-school activities and clubs, both academic and non-academic. For boarding students this will apply every day as well as Saturdays. Day students will be expected to attend after school activities on a minimum of three days per week.

* Students joining the Academy in Year 8 from outside Gujarat, and where there is no cultural or family connection with Gujarat, will be exempt from studying Gujarati. The time will be used for other studies.
