Active learning happens best the students are engaged with the topic. With this purpose in mind, Crescendo-HELP International School adopts the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which ensures rigorous and participative learning using a comprehensive and thematic approach.
As one of UK's fastest growing curriculum, IPC is currently practised in over 90 countries and used by over 1,600 schools. Learning with IPC takes a global approach, embedded with a clear process of learning which covers 3 main goals - academic, personal and international-mindedness. The themes are chosen to cater to the needs according to the child's interest and age group, ensuring a balance in subjects and learning styles.
Students from lower secondary are exposed to a range of subjects which allow for their curious minds to explore various themes and subjects. This is to prepare them for upper secondary where students choose their IGCSE subjects in order to further move them on for tertiary education. The International Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), the registered trademark of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) offers qualifications that are internationally recognised and accepted by colleges and universities around the world.
The IPC has been developed to show children the connectivity of aspects of learning across the curriculum. There are many themes for each level of the primary school which allows staff to tailor the selection to ensure a balance across the subjects, knowledge and skills.
