Senior College Academics

We pride ourselves on combining the excitement and innovation of a relatively new concept in education by offering students the best of both worlds.    In Form 1 the students are introduced to the broader spectrum of subjects offered on a cross-curriculum of the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and the Independent Examinations Board (IEB).  At the end of this first year, students choose seven subjects for their Form 2 year selecting either the Cambridge Curriculum or the IEB Curriculum, provided they have achieved the required minimum standard.  Our focus is on Academic, Sport and Cultural Excellence.
