Our Learning System
Kayron International College is an accredited Cambridge International Examination school. We run an integrated blend of the Nigerian and British curricula. 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)
Al 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. This indicates the topics being taught in each term. Subject leaders review the long-term plans each year and are amended regularly or 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 learners’ 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 (ages 14 to 16) also follow the blended curriculum
