HIGH SCHOOL - Grades 9 & 10
International General Certificate of Secondary Education
IGCSE is a two-year programme leading to externally set, marked and certificated examinations from the University of Cambridge. The IGCSE sessions at Sprouts are alive with interactive sessions and provides opportunities for practicalapplication of the new learnings. There is an interesting blend of relevant syllabus, international standards of delivery and a Montessori approach to an “Active-Learning” classroom set-up. The aim is to prepare the learners to reflect and arrive at their own goals for work. Collaborative working allows for peer learning and assessment, which is crucial to co-construct their new knowledge.
The core characteristics of this classroom are:
Developed by Cambridge International Examination (CIE) in 1988, IGCSE is a very popular English language curriculum. IGCSE is an extremely flexible and a dynamic curriculum, that gives students scope to choose subjects based on their interests. All the subjects have a ‘core’ and ‘extended’ paper. While the former touches upon every topic in the subject, the latter is an in-depth study of each topic.
The IGCSE syllabus is extremely learner centric, keeping both the cultural and social context of the child in mind. Based on international standards of teaching, it retains a local relevance for each region.
We offer a wide range of subjects that a child can pursue for future opportunities, based on their individual interests. A child can opt for a min of 5 subjects and a max of 7 subjects, which include the compulsory subjects of Mathematics and English as First language.
