Cambridge curriculum and learning methodology are flexible and can be adapted to suit the needs of the learner. Moreover, the child will be provided extended support to integrate his learning with the new format. Our system of counseling and mentoring also will help the child make a smooth transition.
This curriculum fosters analytical and rational thinking. Besides ensuring that the learner remains confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged, it encourages a holistic understanding of each subject, focusing on inter-relationship between the topics learnt across the curriculum, which they can apply to everyday situations.
