IGCSE and AS-A levels
The Secondary School curriculum at Ajman Academy builds logically on from the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) philosophies offered in the Primary School.
Inquiry-based learning is prominent as students move logically on to the Middle Years Programme (MYP) in Grades 6,7 and 8. The MYP promotes research into the real world, and the outcome is that our students develop into creative and reflective thinkers.
The eight areas of MYP study comprise of maths, sciences, language acquisition, language and literature, individuals and societies, arts, PE/health education and design.
In Grades 9 and 10, students at Ajman Academy study the mandated Ministry subjects of Islamic Religion, Moral Education and Social Studies, in addition to Arabic A (1st Language Arabic) or Arabic B (for non-native speakers).
IGCSE Subjects available for 2019-2020:
British Curriculum IGCSEs are available in Mathematics and English (both compulsory) with options available in Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics), Individuals and Societies (History, Geography) and Design (Digital or Product).
Further options include French, ICT, Computer Studies, Business Studies and Economics.
IGCSEs are typically undertaken across two years of study (Grades 9 and 10), but Ajman Academy incorporates an option for the third year of study in Grade 11 for students who would benefit from the additional time this route takes.
In Grades 11 and 12, we offer globally recognised, ‘gold standard’ British Curriculum A levels across a range of subjects, including English, Maths, Sciences, Computing, Business and the Arts.
Personalised and specialist student counselling is available to all students to ensure that students and parents can make the most informed choices of subject. Ministry obligations also underpin all subject guidance and appropriate consideration is given to student aspirations within Higher Education and/or the workplace.
