Our Middle School science courses are general science courses developing skills and knowledge in four strands: biology, chemistry, physics, and scientific inquiry, that builds upon the learning of previous years. Students learn through hands-on practical experiences, for example with experiments, as well as through secondary sources. The course follows the science curriculum for Cambridge Assessment International Education Secondary 1 level. This curriculum prepares students to enter the Coordinated Science course (which includes biology, chemistry and physics) at the IGCSE level.
