OWIS - IB PYP for Early Childhood

IB PYP for Early Childhood 1 to Grade 5

The IB PYP curriculum is ideal for our early childhood learners and primary school students from the ages of 3-11 because it prioritises hands-on learning opportunities. The students in our Early Childhood and primary school programmes are able to explore their world while learning about fundamental concepts in their own way.

The IB PYP curriculum also stresses the importance of developing emotional and social skills. Students in our early childhood and primary school programmes develop a respect for themselves and others as they learn to interact in a community setting.

Cambridge Curriculum for Grade 6 to Grade 10

In Grades 6 to 8, we follow the Modified Cambridge Curriculum, based on the Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme. This has been adapted to fit the international school setting at OWIS. This curriculum allows students to acquire knowledge and develop an appreciation for people of all cultures and backgrounds.

The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum for Grades 9 to 10 is known for its rigorous instruction for students between the ages of 14-16. It is a globally recognised qualification through which students can learn academic rigour and gain a deeper understanding of different subjects.

In addition, we offer everyday life skills through our personal, social and health education classes.
