What to Expect From Our Rigorous and Holistic Secondary School Education
12 to 14 years
Modified Cambridge Curriculum
In Grades 6 to 8, we follow the Modified Cambridge curriculum, which is based on the Cambridge Lower Secondary framework and has been adapted for our international school’s context. This well-rounded programme, which covers academic subjects and co-scholastic and digital learning, has been designed as a bridge to the IGCSEs in Grade 9 and 10 and starts preparing students with the knowledge and skills they will need as they progress towards the higher grades. Our focus on nurturing the attributes of the IB Learner Profile continues, and we encourage students to develop their critical thinking, communication, collaborative and research skills.
15 to 16 years
In the Cambridge IGCSE in Grades 9 and 10 at OWIS, students can develop their understanding of different subjects in more depth and apply their knowledge in real-world situations. It is a skills-based, well-rounded programme based on a structured and rigorous curriculum, making it the perfect preparation for the pre-university grades.(OWIS Nanyang is accredited for the Cambridge IGCSE.)
