Upper Secondary

From 14 years old

At the Upper Secondary level, Integrated International School (IIS) is one of the leading inclusive international schools in Singapore that offers the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) programme. The IGCSE programme is an internationally recognised qualification that is offered by two examinations boards in the UK including Pearson Edexcel, which constitutes our full curriculum here at IIS. It is a two-year programme specially designed for students aged 14-16 and covers a wide range of subject areas including English, Mathematics, Science, and others. The IGCSE curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in academics and prepares them for further studies in different countries.

Learning in Upper Secondary

The IGCSEs are globally recognised international academic qualifications for our Grade 10 and 11 students. IIS implements our IGCSE programme through the reputed Pearson Edexcel examination body to foster inquisitive thinking and empower our students as global citizens.

The Pearson Edexcel IGCSE curriculum offers a flexible course of study, as students have the freedom to choose from different subjects in addition to the two compulsory subjects of English and Mathematics. This allows our students to tailor their studies to their interests and strengths. The Pearson Edexcel IGCSE curriculum is developed to encourage students to think critically and acquire problem-solving skills while simultaneously broadening their subject knowledge.

At IIS, the IGCSE curriculum supports students to develop a range of transferable skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, leadership and collaboration. These skills will ensure that students are better equipped to access higher levels of academic study and will be able to demonstrate highly sought after skills to their future employers.

At our inclusive learning school in Singapore, we believe that all students have the ability to succeed in their studies. We offer a supportive environment where students can feel confident and motivated to achieve their best. Our IGCSE curriculum is taught by experienced and qualified teachers who are trained in recognising the needs of individual learners, adapting lesson content and delivery to meet these needs. We use a variety of teaching methods to ensure that all students can access the material, make progress in their learning and reach their full potential.

IGCSE Examinations

At the end of the two-year IGCSE programme, students will sit for the IGCSE examinations. The format of the IGCSE examinations are designed to be more accessible to international learners studying in Singapore; offering a syllabus based on the British model, but with a wider, more global perspective. These examinations are the international equivalent of the GCSE exam; the standard year 11 qualification in the UK. The Pearson Edexcel IGCSEs are studied in over 80 countries worldwide including the UK, USA, Singapore, and Australia. They provide the skills and knowledge needed for students to progress to A Levels, International A Levels, onto university and into employment.
