College Curriculum

Kayron International School is an accredited Cambridge International Examination school. We run a hybrid blend of the Nigeria and British curriculum. Our learners follow the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and the British National Curriculum in the six years of secondary education culminating in the Checkpoint examinations in English, Mathematics and Science; the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE); the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).

All learners have the right to a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account.

To achieve this, we devise long-term plans for each year group through a carefully planned Scheme of Work (SoW). This indicates the topics being taught in each term. Subject leaders review the long-term plans each year and they are amended when necessary.

Our short-term plans are those that our teachers devise on a weekly basis. We use these to set out the learning objectives and success criteria for each session, and to identify what resources and activities we are going to use in the lesson. They give clearer guidance on the learning objectives and teaching strategies that we use when teaching each topic.

Our teachers are encouraged to be creative, which enables us to make links between subjects and for transferable skills to be applied to a range of uses in order to enhance the development of individual learners. There is planned progression in all curriculum areas. The curriculum in lower Secondary – Key stage 3 (ages 10 to 13) is more subject based and aims at building students ability to work independently and think critically. At this stage the emphasis is on exposing learner’s opportunities to a wide range of subjects so that they can begin to form ideas of where their academic interests lie.  The Upper Secondary learners (Key Stage 4) also follow the blended curriculum (ages 14 to 16).

We understand that some children may experience learning difficulties and disruptions. These group of children are catered for via our specially planned Individual Educational Programme (IEP).

Technology is an integral part of our curriculum. Our learners join lessons from anywhere they are. Therefore, our classrooms have specially fitted cameras and interactive boards which zoom our lessons live to our learners wherever they are.
