Secondary and High School
Laying the foundation for every student’s success
EtonHouse has a culture of academic rigour, caring and individualised support for students in their Secondary and High School years. Our students are happy, engaged with their learning, and aptly ambitious for their future. Our personalised approach ensures that our students develop as independent learners with the skills, knowledge and understanding to appreciate their contribution to society and to be prepared for the next steps in their lives.
Our pedagogical approach utilises a fusion of proactive use of information technology and inquiry-based learning to develop essential skills in students. Our curriculum is constructed to emphasise the interconnectedness across subjects so that students develop an integrated understanding that is relevant to the demands of the 22nd Century.
Our curriculum develops into the internationally recognised and respected Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Programme in Years 9, 10 and 11. Developing the IGCSE curriculum over three years allows students to develop both depth and breadth in their study. This preparation will serve them well as High School students, where they will be offered the IB Diploma Programme*.
Our students help shape our curriculum. We encourage them to choose their own projects as this helps to develop highly engaged learners with groundbreaking work. Our class size has a rich teacher-to-student ratio to ensure that your children receive more personalised academic and pastoral support.
We are committed to a fluid interdisciplinary approach to education. Our boutique secondary school environment ensures that learning objectives in one subject flow into others, consolidating learning and allowing students to make personally meaningful connections through experiential tasks. For example, map skills in Geography might feed into compass directions, coordinates and scale in Mathematics, which could feed into orienteering in Outdoor Education.
Right from the get-go, we put your children on the path to examination success. Through bi-annual assessments, mock examinations, study skills sessions and study instructions, your children can develop both confidence and knowledge as they prepare for their examinations.
