Programmes and syllabus

An integrated curriculum with fun-filled activity and a ‘hands on’ approach to learning makes school an enjoyable experience. The teaching-learning process is child-oriented and focuses on ‘active and joyful learning’.

The Cambridge Primary Programme (CPP) provides a framework for teaching the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. Curriculum is integrated, according to international standards and parameters thereby allowing the students to think laterally. 

Teaching and learning outcomes are reflected through innovative assessment techniques. It helps to identify a student’s strength and area for improvement, which can be used to support learning and development. A wide range of teaching strategies and curricula encourage the use of local, national and international mindedness. At ABWA, we make the learning experiential, active and holistic. 

Thus the CPP progresses students seamlessly into the middle years curricula, such as the Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme and the IGCSE Programme.

The Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme is a framework for educational success for students approximately 11 – 14 years old. It builds on the Primary stage and develops children’s knowledge and skills in Mathematics, English and Science and is integrated with other curricula.

The Lower Secondary Programme also offers schools a means of tracking student progress through the lower secondary phase, with an integrated package of teaching, learning and assessment tools. The Programme also provides excellent preparation for students embarking on the IGCSE course.

Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) offers a flexible course of study to pupils and gives the freedom to choose subjects that are right for them, whilst providing a broad knowledge base and lifelong skills. Within the curriculum there is a balanced mix of practical experience and theoretical knowledge.

We offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, which is a challenging two-year curriculum. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognised by the world’s leading universities. Students learn more than a collection of facts. The Programme encourages them to develop a strong sense of identity and culture and at the same time understand things with a global perspective.

Given increasing globalisation, and to build as well-rounded a personality as possible through experiential and holistic learning, the school is offering A levels in addition to the IB Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12 from the academic year 2013-14.
