Both IGCSE and A Levels lead to a internationally recognized formal qualification by means of examinations for each subject. Both curriculums place great emphasis on the development of critical and evaluative thought. The ability to synthesize, compare, analyse and criticse information is essential both in the classroom and is also assessed in exams. At our school cross-curricula project work is part of our curriculum. Application and experimentation are central to our science curriculum. Not having a schedule packed with obligatory competency based assessments and projects allows for a curriculum with room for authentic, timely development of the above-mentioned skills.
At both the ICCSE and A Levels, the individual subjects are completed by means of a final examination. During the lessons we encourage critical examination of the subject matter, as this competence is vital for success in the final exams: Our students learn to process, compare, analyse and evaluate information.
