Middle Years Programme

As your child transitions into their middle years of schooling, we enrich their growth academically and socially

As your child’s education at Oakridge International School continues, they will broaden their study whilst expanding their minds.

The IB Curriculum enables students to confidently transition from primary education to the CBSE or IGCSE Programme and develops the skills and confidence your child will need to thrive. Our curricula at middle year builds on your child’s knowledge and gives them the tools and confidence to critique what they hear and see, and to embark on their own learning outside of the classroom.

Broadly the subjects taught to the Middle Years Programme provide students with learning objectives to ensure a base of knowledge in each area of study. In this way Oakridge affirms the dynamic pattern of the three stages – inquiry, action, and reflection as essential relationships found in every unit of study. Your child will learn to apply techniques learned in one subject to several others, and will be able to learn at a pace that they find comfortable. They will receive personalised attention from our skilled and caring teachers.
