Senior School Curriculum
The curriculum offered in the upper years is the IGCSE and IB Diploma Programme. These are rigorous academic curricula which are designed to challenge pupils intellectually.
We provide a broad and balanced curriculum in the Senior School; we teach skills, knowledge, concepts and attitudes in all curriculum areas, following carefully designed guidelines.
The curriculum offered at St. Paul’s is intended to facilitate the successful transition to Senior School, develop academic independence and good study habits through a wide range of subjects, and prepare pupils for the demands of the international examination courses (IGCSE and IB).
Pupils also have one tutorial period per fortnight in which they follow a programme related to personal, social and health education (PSHE). They also have one period per fortnight dedicated to enrichment activities, where pupils can choose from a broad selection of co-curricular activities ranging from robotics to rugby, and from knitting to astronomy.
The IGCSE programme, offered by many international schools, gives solid foundation knowledge while improving pupils’ critical thinking skills. It is also an excellent preparation for the International Baccalaureate course in the Sixth Form.
