Students will follow a UK International curriculum, which leads to IGCSE examinations and international qualifications which are globally recognised.

Students will play to their identified strengths, with IGCSE giving the opportunity for +2/A Level studies at the conclusion of Grade 10.

The Academy has decided to offer ONLY a UK-based International curriculum. This applies to the entire school, with Preschool, Primary and Lower Secondary programmes of study leading to IGCSE courses. Teaching styles and methodologies are constantly referencing the kind of investigative learning and creative thinking which is required at the ‘top end’ of the curriculum.

IGCSE is a two year programme which is delivered in Grades 9 and 10.

This programme is internationally recognised and will be administered by a UK International Examinations syndicate.

Typically students will take final examinations in ONE subject at the end of Grade 9 (the first year of IGCSE study), which will be English as a Second Language.

At the end of Grade 10 students will take at least a further 7 subjects.

All students will take Mathematics, English Literature, and Computing or Information and Communication Technology.

They will also take either three separate sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) or Co-Ordinated Science, which has elements of all three sciences and is worth 2 IGCSE awards.

They will also have the option to take Hindi, Physical Education, Business Studies, Economics, English Literature, and Art & Design, as well as English as a First Language.

Students with reading and writing ability in Gujarati will be able to take this subject at IGCSE level without formal teaching, with examination preparation being delivered through workshops.

IGCSEs are awarded at the following levels: HIGHER PASSES at grades A*, A, B, and CLOWER PASSES at grades D, E, F, and G

Some subjects are taught at TWO levels, Core and Extended. Core curricula offer grades up to C. Extended curricula offer grades up to A*

Percentages are provided for all grade levels.

For progression to A level study a higher pass grade at a minimum level of B is required to study any specific subject.

The Academy’s aim is for all students to complete Grade 10 with at least 8 higher subject passes. The UK benchmark, which we expect all students to exceed, is 5 higher passes.

The Academy will be seeking accreditation to become an International examinations centre in 2018. One option is the programme run by CIE. Further information about the CIE IGCSE programme can be found at the following website: www.cie.org.uk

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.

Involvement in sports will be expected from all students, with Olympic standard sports facilities available for all students to enjoy. Students will represent the Academy at State and National sporting competitions.
