Our School‘s curriculum is all of the planned activities that we organize in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Adcote aims to offer a broad and balanced range of educational experiences that will encourage students to develop a sense of responsibility for their community and their environment, whilst discovering and stretching their individual academic, creative and sporting talents.


Adcote wants students to grow into positive, responsible learners who can work and cooperate with each other while, at the same time, developing their knowledge and skills in order to achieve their true potential and prepare for a successful life in the 21st Century.


We value the breadth of the curriculum that we provide and aim to use it to foster confidence, knowledge, creativity and skills in our students and help them to become independent learners. Above all we believe in providing each pupil with a sense of their own worth within a safe, caring environment and the opportunity to reach or exceed their expectations.

The aims of our School curriculum are:


  • To enable all students to learn and develop their skills to the best of their ability.

  • To teach students about the world they live in and their place in it.

  • To enable students to have respect for themselves and high self-esteem, and to live and work cooperatively with others.

  • To help students understand the importance of fairness and the difference between right and wrong so that they grow up committed to equal opportunities for all

  • To appreciate the value and contribution made by all ethnic groups in our multi-cultural society.

  • To promote a positive attitude towards learning so that students enjoy School and acquire a solid basis for lifelong, independent learning.

  • To enable students to be creative and develop their own thinking.

  • To teach students the necessary knowledge and skills to tackle life in the 21st Century.

Curriculum


Adcote has a comprehensive and inclusive curriculum that aims to meet the academic, social, emotional and physical needs of all its students. We aim to prepare students for life in university and beyond.


Our rigorous academic programme is based on the Cambridge Assessment International Education syllabuses and requirements. Cambridge offers students two levels of qualifications at this age group: the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and the Advanced Level certificates. Both IGCSE and A Levels are valued and accepted as meeting the very high entry requirements to the top Universities in the world.

IGSCE and A Level


The IGCSE by Cambridge,offers many subjects and students in most international schools study at least five subjects concurrently over a 2-year period. Cambridge provides examinations as a final assessment of student performance at the end of the 2-year courses according to a strict global timetable. Some students at Adcote have the opportunity to join our Pre- A Level where students take a high-intensity learning programme to take the examinations in one year. This one year study is highly intensive.


Students passing the IGCSE examinations at the required level in the required subjects may then go on to study at Advanced Level. ALevels are one-year courses at Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and a subsequent Advanced level 2nd year (A2) course.


Universities judge student applications according to a number of factors. Academically, student performance at IGSCE and AS is a very good predictor for success at A Level and for continued success at university.
