In the Senior years, First Steps School emphasizes creative yet critical thinking and developing independent learning skills. The Senior School curriculum prepares students for their future education with an increasing number of specialist subject teachers.

Girls and boys follow a broad, balanced curriculum including English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Art, Performing Arts, PE & Games and PSCHE (Personal, Social, Citizenship and Health Education).

The Grade 8 students appear for the Cambridge Checkpoint Exams for Science, Math and English. These exams are diagnostic tests which are marked by CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) and provide analysis of the students’ strengths and weaknesses in these core subjects. They also serve as an international certification recognizing that the student is at par with international standards for secondary education.

Being a Cambridge Associate School:

Cambridge International Examinations prepares school students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. We are part of Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge. The international qualifications are recognised by the world’s best universities and employers, giving students a wide range of options in their education and career.

Our students join a community of learners from more than 10000 schools in over 160 countries. The programmes and qualifications have been created for students worldwide but there is plenty of space for local content too. Distance does not create a barrier between Cambridge learners around the world. Online communities bring schools and learners together to discuss their projects and activities. By developing a global outlook in Cambridge learners, we aim to equip them for success in the fast-changing modern world.

The students will follow a natural progression from Kindergarten onwards, as depicted in the diagram below.
