MIDDLE SCHOOL (GRADES 6 TO 8) : All students follow a common curriculum which builds on the work done in the primary years and forms a firm base for future study in Grades 9 & 10. The broad spectrum satisfies the requirements of the Cambridge International Curriculum and the National Curriculum (England), which will enable students to explore a variety of disciplines as they acquire knowledge and skills which will prepare them to make informed choices for the IGCSE examinations.
