Secondary and Advanced

Each subject has a framework and programme of study and is supported by high-quality textbooks which are endorsed by Cambridge.

After joining the Lower Secondary School, students go through a period of adaptation and transition to subject learning. At this level of education, we focus on the development of independence, develop critical thinking skills in our students, as well as the ability to analyse, synthesise and interpret the information received.

Secondary School students get more opportunities to show leadership, but at the same time—more responsibility for their own learning. By the end of Year 9, students should be able to make an informed choice of subjects for the next stage of their education, based on their experience of studying the full spectrum of subjects in Lower Secondary School.

Cambridge Advanced

The Cambridge Advanced or A Level programme is the advanced, higher level of the Cambridge International programme, followed by Year 12 and Year 13 students (16-19 years). If they successfully fulfil all the requirements of the Advanced programme, graduates receive the globally recognised and highly regarded diploma, which is a certificate of international education that meets global standards. This programme enables students to fully understand the gist of any subject and develops independent thinking in them.

Heritage School follows a programme which is recognised and valued by the most prestigious universities around the globe and which develops students’ knowledge, understanding, and skills in the following areas:

  • a thorough understanding of any subject
  • independent thinking
  • application of the knowledge and understanding of new, as well as familiar, situations
  • logical thinking and presenting coherent arguments
  • making estimates and decisions
  • working and communicating in English

Upon successfully completing the Advanced/A Level programme (finishing Year 13), students can obtain the Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) diploma. The Cambridge AICE diploma is an invaluable passport not only to further development at the most reputable universities around the world, but also to jobs in leading companies worldwide.
