Lower secondary school: Pre-IGCSE
In lower secondary (years 7 and 8), the Academia curriculum is based on the Cambridge International Curriculum. This curriculum allows great scope for creativity while preparing students to enter the internationally recognised IGCSE programme in year 9.
Our students attend the following subjects in our lower secondary school: English, German, French, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Art, Music, Physical Education
All academic subjects are taught in English. However, a considerable part of our teaching time is dedicated to German by layering our curriculum with project-based learning. This means that students not only attend German language lessons but also work on projects to reinforce learning in science and humanities, thus building a rich specialised vocabulary in German.
