We are a registered school of Cambridge Assessment International Education, the only exam board wholly owned by a world-leading university, the University of Cambridge. Cambridge International qualifications prepare students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. They are recognised by universities and employers around the world.
Our children, right from nursery onwards, are trained in cognitive, communication and memorization skills. They are encouraged to participate in Interactive learning processes and pursue varied research activities.
Apart from the formal subjects namely English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography, our students excel in Business Studies, ICT, Public Speaking and multiple languages from an early age.
Approximately 20 students per class and a teacher to student ratio of about 1:5 facilitates better student-teacher rapport and facilitate individual attention to students. This brings out the best learning potential in each student. Our team embraces the belief that the curriculum must be alive and constantly evolving.
Our focus on a balanced curriculum ensures holistic development of the child.
Approach to curriculum design
AS and A Levels: We offer Physics, Math, Chemistry, Biology, English, Business Studies, Information Technology and Islamic Studies.
IGCSE: We offer seven subjects namely Physics, English, Chemistry, Biology, Math, Business Studies and Information & Communication Technology for IGCSE which is completed over a period of three years. In Year 8 (14 year olds) the core curriculum option is offered and in Year 9 and Year 10 (15 - 16 year olds) both core and extended curriculum options are offered.
For Year 6 and Year 7(12-13 year olds) we follow the Lower Secondary Curriculum Framework of the Cambridge Pathway.
For Years 1 to 5(6-11 year olds), the curriculum is designed based on the Lower Primary Curriculum Framework except for English. It is supported with resources available on the Cambridge International website
The kindergarten curriculum is designed to construct the knowledge base required for the Lower Primary in consultation with experts in early childhood learning.

Extra Curricular Activities
By going through the process of building a robot in the classroom, students explore many different learning pathways. When assembling robots in teams, some students are great at speaking and can verbally bring ideas to life. There are students who may not be as vocal but they lead behind the scenes: they code, perform technical tasks and makes sure the team stays on task. Through the exercise of putting the robot together and making it move, these two types of students—both leaders in their own right—learn to communicate as a team and express their ideas to craft the best end result. The ability to come together as different types of leaders, communicate with each other and utilize their personal strengths will be essential throughout these students’ lives; no matter if they become an artist, a business executive or an engineer.
Students plant vegetables in our in-house garden and learn the essential for home gardening. They also learn to protect these crops from insects with homemade pesticides.
We believe in making our learners aware of their responsibility as an Indian and global citizen through presentations, competitions on environmental and global issues, field trips and community drives.
Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, “Protect yourself from hell-fire even by giving a piece of date as charity.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
