The Cambridge Primary curriculum is administered for learners within the age bracket of 5 to 11 years. The program imparts understanding in English, Maths and Science which are core subjects. The schools also have Information and communication technology (ICT) programs for learners to attain computer literacy along with Global Perspectives, Hindi, French (as third language) and Visual Art as a part of primary curriculum.
Each framework for English, Mathematics and Science is designed to engage learners in an active and creative learning journey while providing a comprehensive set of progressive learning objectives.
Children's social and emotional well-being is an integral part of Primary curriculum. Through PSHE lessons and assemblies we emphasize the importance of life skills such as respect, honesty, kindness and Independence.
The structure of the program is completely need based, and the feedback given throughout the program is quite comprehensive. The school also provides a structure for teaching and learning and a reference against which learners' ability and understanding can be checked. The Cambridge Primary curriculum promotes an inquiry based approach to learning to develop thinking skills and encourage intellectual engagements.
Cambridge Primary Assessment uses internationally benchmarked tests, giving parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.

Upper Secondary is typically for learners aged 14 to 16 years. The curriculum provides broad and balanced study across a wide range of subjects, using learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning. Learners take internationally recognised Cambridge IGCSE or Cambridge O Level qualifications at the end of Cambridge Upper Secondary.
Cambridge IGCSE helps students to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in subject content and intellectual enquiry. Cambridge IGCSE has been designed for students worldwide, including those whose first language is not English. They offer students the flexibility to choose from over 70 subjects at Cambridge IGCSE, meaning they can study the subjects they enjoy and are best at.
Assessment takes place at the end of the course and offers students a range of ways to demonstrate their learning, including written, oral, coursework and practical assessments. There are also options to suit learners of different abilities. The grades awarded at Cambridge IGCSE are A*–G, with A* being the highest. This means that Cambridge IGCSE is a great foundation for further study, including Cambridge International AS & A Level, Cambridge Pre-U, the International Baccalaureate Diploma and other post-16 routes.
A Cambridge IGCSE qualification is recognised by leading universities around the world and employers view it as a valuable certificate of achievement. In the UK, Cambridge IGCSE is accepted as equivalent to the GCSE. A good grade (grade C or above) in Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language is accepted for entry by a number of universities in the UK as evidence of competence in the English language. Many universities worldwide require a combination of Cambridge IGCSEs and Cambridge International A Levels to meet their entry requirements. Leading US and Canadian universities require Cambridge International AS & A Levels, but some US and Canadian colleges and universities will accept students with five Cambridge IGCSEs at grade C or above.

We have been very impressed with the all-round personal development of our child, Aayaan Mody (Grade I). He has become more expressive, inquisitive, and confident. He has thoroughly enjoyed the curricular activities of sports, yoga, and dance. Introduction of a foreign language so early in his schooling has been a plus. Looking forward to the next academic year.
