Secondary School Curriculum

Our key objective is to offer our students a broad and balanced curriculum, building on their previous learning while introducing new concepts to deepen and broaden their knowledge. We do this in a measured way, with the realization that our students will come from a variety of educational backgrounds, and we must consciously introduce topics in a way that accommodates the uniqueness of each student’s experiences, strengths, and weakness.

Our Secondary School curriculum is structured to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Learning how to learn: A key objective of our lower school curriculum is to teach the students how to learn through books and research, and to make the connection between the various subjects. Our curriculum also helps to develop the students’ ability assimilate knowledge. This prepares them for future academic studies in the coming years.
     

  2. Getting Ready for National & International Intermediate Assessments: Our Secondary School curriculum is also structured to prepare students for national and international examinations and assessments. 

    At the end of the Lower Secondary School, we expect our students to be fully ready for and be successful in the following examinations:

  • International Exams:        Cambridge Checkpoint Examination

  • Nigerian Exams:              Junior WAEC 

At the end of the Upper Secondary School, our students will be fully ready for success in the following examinations:

  • International Exams:        IGCSE

  • Nigerian Exams:              Senior WAEC, JAMB, NECO (Optional) 

All Lower Secondary School students take course in the following subjects:

Target Examinations & Continuous Assessments

To evaluate the progress of our students as they move from one stage/class to another, we continuously subject them to the following internationally recognized intermediate assessments, in addition to our regular termly tests and examinations.

 

  • Year 7: Cambridge Progression Tests (multiple tests administered during the term)

  • Year 8: Cambridge Progression Tests (multiple tests administered during the term)

  • Year 9: Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint Examination (Junior WAEC - optional)

The Cambridge Progression Tests make use of standard Cambridge examination papers and are marked internally. However, the Cambridge Checkpoint is marked by Cambridge International. These examinations help to provide an international benchmark for the students’ performance. The students receive a Statement of Achievement, which gives an indication of their academic progress during this education stage and detailed feedback on their strengths and weaknesses.

 

This approach helps us to achieve the following objectives:

  • Allows teachers to assess the students’ learning as they progress

  • Helps the students to develop a global outlook and while equipping them for success in the modern world

  • Provides the students with on-going feedback on their performance, helps them to become more self-critical and encourages them master their course materials, thus ensuring academic success in their final examinations.
