Our school curriculum is based on the British curriculum. The processes and content are reviewed and adapted, where necessary, to be more responsive to the broad of our international students.
British education at both school and university level, has achieved a worldwide reputation for quality. The approaches are progressive where each stage builds upon what has come before. A British education emphasizes the development of the whole student, and particularly at the primary level; there is great deal of scope for creativity and individuality in the classroom.
The British educational system is highly standardized on a national level. It specifies the various subjects to be taught at different stages, the expected knowledge, skills, and understanding level for the various subjects, and how the students’ progress should be tested.
In our kindergarten and primary sections, KG1 to Grade 8, we have adopted a curriculum that is based on the British Curriculum for all subjects: English Language, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies (History and Geography) and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Our school also teaches Art, Music and our students have at least one period weekly of Physical Education (P.E).
As we are an international school in Sudan and based on our strong belief in the significance of offering a well-established curriculum in the subjects of Arabic Language and Religious Studies, we teach the Sudanese National Curriculum for both of these subjects for all of the above grades.
At the end of Grade 8, our students may sit for the Sudanese Basic Certificate Examinations and accordingly in grades 7 and 8 we have opted to teach all subjects according to the Sudanese National Curriculum. The only exception is in the case of the English Language where we continue to teach the British Curriculum books along with that of the Sudanese Curriculum.
Our high school section ranges and starts from grades 9 to 11, at the end of which the students sit for their IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) examinations. The school currently teaches eight subjects: English Language, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Additional Mathematics, Arabic Language, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Islamic Studies .
In each of the above subjects the school follows the IGCSE curriculum set forth by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
At the end of grade 11, students will sit for their IGSCE Examinations in seven or eight subjects. All students must take six subjects namely: English as a Second Language, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Arabic as a Foreign Language and ICT. A student is then given the option to have the seventh subject as Biology or Additional Mathematics based on their overall average in Mathematics and Additional Mathematics at the end of Grade 10.
In certain cases some students are given the option to sit for eight subjects, that is, they will sit for both Additional Mathematics and Biology, but these are a select few whom have achieved very good results including both Biology and Additional Mathematics.
