At Sri Sankara Global Academy, we follow the Cambridge Curriculum. We prepare students for the appearing for the Cambridge IGCSE at the Grades-9 & 10 level, and the Cambridge AS & A levels at the Grades-11 & 12 level. We are affiliated to the University of Cambridge Assessment International Examinations (CAIE) in UK, which offers the curriculum, assessment, overall guidance and support.
Cambridge IGCSE is worldwide the most popular international qualification at the Grade-10 level. It is recognised by leading universities and employers all over the world and is an international passport to children’s progression and success. At the end of Grade-10, learners will receive an IGCSE certificate in every subject they have passed. After IGCSE, the school offers the Cambridge AS & A levels to be written at the end of Grade-11 & Grade-12 respectively.
The Cambridge IGCSE and A-levels syllabus are tried, tested and trusted by schools all over the world. These qualifications are recognised for admission by UK universities (including Oxford and Cambridge) as well as universities in the United States (including all Ivy League universities like Harvard, Stanford, etc), Canada, the European Union, Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia, and all universities in India..
Cambridge English Exams
We conduct Cambridge English Exams like YLE – Starters, Movers, Flyers, KET, PET, FCE, etc. This helps our learners get an excellent grounding in English as a language required for foreign university admissions and immigration into English speaking countries. It also helps them take up English literature as a career later on in life.
Pre Primary Level (upto age 5.5 yrs)
At the Kindergarten level (Pre-KG, LKG & UKG), we offer an integrated curriculum, especially using audio-visual aids, which helps the child easily adapt to primary school. Since English is at the heart of all learning, we ensure that our learners develop excellent English language skills. From UKG till Grade-2, we also teach English through phonics, using curriculum from our academic partner MiKids. MiKids is structured as per the recommendations of United Kingdom Literacy Strategy and American National Reading Panel. It is conceptualised and developed by renowned British Linguistics experts with a vision to improve English standards all over the world. This learning helps children in the below areas.
