The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the world’s most popular international curriculum for secondary education. Students take exams after their second year (grade 10) to receive their IGCSE certifications in each subject (up to 10 subjects).From there on, various paths are open to our students, be it continuing their studies to attain International A Levels, entering a Junior College in the UK or the US or pursuing vocational training in Switzerland.
We offer a broad range of subjects to meet the individual interests of our students. Exam-relevant subjects are supplemented by an attractive programme of electives and extracurricular activities.
In Zurich we offer our students the following IGCSE-subjects:
- English (as a first language)
- English (as a second language)
- French (as a foreign language)
- German (as a foreign language)
- Natural Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
Further subjects, such as Italian, Russian or Portuguese are offered on request.
Our electives allow students to pursue their interests and passions without the pressure of a formal examination. Our practice-orientated project and lab days are fixed features in our programme. In addition, our student council and school magazine are spaces where our students have a voice. The student council can create student-driven initiatives, promote charitable work or make suggestions for the improvement of our school. We round off our extracurriculars with regular school field trips, culture days, cinema evenings and end-of-year parties which are co-organised by the students.
