Cambridge Primary Programme (5 to 11 years)
The Primary Curriculum is divided into six stages and each stage reflects the teaching targets for a year group in the primary phase set by Cambridge University. A comprehensive, integrated, interactive, bilingual syllabus is offered for students’ enrichment with projects and experimental work ensuring active hands on learning. The medium of instruction is English and complete individual attention is ensured by the educator. The curriculum is enriched by specially designed, skill based worksheets and academic activities. Specialised professionals, taking account of individual needs, also teach drama, art, physical education, computer studies, swimming, skating, indoor games, dance, music and yoga etc.
The focus at this stage in learning is on linguistic, observational, and analytical and enquiry based skills. The mode of re-enforcement of these skills is through students’ involvement in research, experiments, debates and projects that requires them to link all aspects of the curriculum together thus emphasizing the relevance of academic knowledge to their every – day – lives.
Cambridge Secondary-1 (11 to 14 years)
The middle years are the phase of transition when the student passes through a critical period of mental, physical and emotional change from childhood to adolescence. At MWS, we understand the needs of the child at this stage and design our curriculum to meet the crucial needs of the child. We design classroom presentations to meet the student’s abilities. The faculty works with each student individually. Educators plan, evaluate and assign lessons; prepare, administer and grade tests.
