The field trips and educational visits, industrial exposure and the domestic and international trips offer an experiential learning opportunity to our young scholars.

Cambridge Primary Programme

The Cambridge Primary curriculum is based on theories and practices that are prevalent internationally. It is a comprehensive provision for teaching children aged between 5 to 11 years. It starts learners on an exciting educational journey, helping them to become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged.

The Primary programme covers English, Mathematics and Science, developing essential skills in literacy, thinking and working mathematically and scientific enquiry.

This programme gives students a larger platform for growth and learning. It provides excellent foundations for the next stage of education, as well as plenty of opportunities to develop creativity, expression and personal wellbeing in a variety of ways. We have also introduced Global Perspectives which has a skill-based curriculum focusing on imbibing the 21st century skills.

The Cambridge Primary science curriculum helps learners not only develop life-long curiosity but also seek scientific explanations to the phenomena they observe around them. To incorporate subject areas for Social Science like Community Living, Our Environment, and so on, we have developed a unique curriculum called VIBGYOR Concepts or V Concepts.

V Concepts is an effective curriculum, which develops in-depth knowledge, skills and understanding in three key areas:

  • Academics
  • Personal Development
  • International Understanding

The goal of V-concepts is to provide a holistic education and develop skills necessary to prepare our students for academics and the challenges of a dynamically changing world.

The inquiry methodology with experiential learning through simulation activities, culminating activities, field trips and events assist in direct experiences and focused reflection, in order to increase knowledge and develop skills.

We believe education works best when curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment align. Cambridge Lower Secondary prepares students for the next stage by developing knowledge, understanding and skills across the programme.

Cambridge Lower Secondary offers a curriculum framework for educational success typically for learners in the age bracket of 11-14 years. It also provides excellent preparation for our learners embarking on Cambridge Secondary 2 (IGCSE).

Knowledge, understanding and higher order thinking skills.

The curriculum is challenging and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach.

These are transferable skills that will last a lifetime, preparing students for their future lives. They also make learning enjoyable and rewarding.

They provide valid assessment of knowledge, skills and understanding. And offer structured feedback to learners and provide evidence of learning to parents and school leaders. The qualifications obtained by our senior students open the doors to universities both in India and abroad. Cambridge qualifications are universally recognised and welcomed.

International Award for Young People (IAYP)

We are working with the International Award for Young People (IAYP) which delivers the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award in India to offer our schools new ways to broaden their curriculum. Our organisations believe that learning should not be confined to the classroom but should also take place in the school environment and wider community.

The Award Programme was introduced in India in 1962 to encourage young people in the country to achieve their full growth potential within the framework of Indian society, to improve their moral, social and intellectual well-being, and to ‘Equip them for Life’. Currently, students from over 240 institutions across India participate in the Award Programme. So far over 100,000 young people have successfully gained their Awards.

Through these awards, we would like to promote the importance of life skills, attitudes, and values in our students as well as to develop their innate abilities and talents. The non-competitive nature of these awards encourages a child to compete with his or herself to bring out the best.

The IAYP Award is a life-changing experience that will help to transform students to:

• Gain recognition for extra/co-curricular activities
• Improve their personal development by learning new skills such as time management, teamwork and problem-solving
• Build their confidence by trying something new
• Make a positive impact on their community through volunteering
• Undertake activities that support applications for college, university or employment

The Award is comprised of three levels and four sections:

• Bronze - for those over 14 years old
• Silver - for those over 15 years old
• Gold - for those over 16 years old.

Participants complete all four sections at each level to achieve their Award. At the Gold level, participants also complete a residential project.
