Curriculum & Programs

The Grange uses the Cambridge International English, Mathematics and Science curriculum to provide a solid foundation in literacy, numeracy and science. The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is brought in to provide students with a multi-disciplinary approach to learn about the world around them while developing disciplinary knowledge and skills and cross-disciplinary 21st Century skills. Through the IPC, students also develop important personal attributes and a sense of international-mindedness that would better prepare them for the world we live in and into the future.

Assessment Strategies

At The Grange, we find assessment an integral part of teaching and learning. That is why we closely monitor our student progress using both formative and summative assessment practices.

  • Formative assessment – provides teachers with quick feedback that they can use for driving instruction and learning
  • Summative assessment – evaluates every student’s learning at the end of an instructional chapter or unit

Both students and teachers are actively involved in these assessments. Also, the Institution ensures that every student’s social and academic progress are valued equally.

Assessment Strategies and Tools include, but not limited to:

  • Observations
  • Self-assessments
  • Peer assessments
  • Student reflection
  • Open-ended tasks
  • Performance tasks
  • Process-focused tasks
  • Student-led conference

Detailed descriptive reports are given to parents twice a year and two parent/teacher conferences are conducted to discuss each student’s social and academic progress. A Student Led Conference is also conducted towards the end of each academic year. Academic achievement of students is benchmarked according to the Cambridge International Primary Curriculum. At the end of Year 6, students are able to sit the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Assessments which provide valuable feedback on learners’ strengths and weaknesses before they progress to secondary education.
