Our secondary school educationYour child will follow the English National Curriculum, which culminates in IGCSE exams at 16 years old, before continuing onward to A-levels.
Our enhanced British curriculum applied in our local context in Yangon, Myanmar combines the highest standards of subject teaching with transformative learning experiences. Taking a holistic approach, we’ll build your child’s knowledge and grow the attributes they need to succeed at IGCSE level and beyond.
The English National Curriculum’s Key Stage 3 runs from Years 7 to 9. Your child will study English, maths, science, history, geography, computing, modern foreign languages, drama, music, art, and physical education. This will give them a flavour of what it’ll be like to study each subject at IGCSE level, helping them to make their choices at the end of Year 9.
Key Stage 3 curriculum
Our students work with specialist teachers through each subject, who’ll encourage their participation, critical thinking, and independence. Our teachers make every lesson challenging and adapt them to different levels for students with varying needs. Your child’s learning will always be personalised. In every subject, our teachers will stretch your child where they need it, identify areas for growth, and establish clear goals.
Project work is an essential component of our secondary curriculum, too. Your child will work both individually and in groups, building their collaboration and problem-solving skills.
Offered by Cambridge International Examinations and Edexcel examination boards, our two-year IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) programme is rigorous, internationally recognised, and unique to Myanmar. The subjects we offer include specific international elements, shaped by specialists.
