The Pearson Edexcel Curriculum for International Schools
The comprehensive Pearson Edexcel curriculum is based on the UK Key Stages and supports students from Reception all the way through Advanced Levels and university preparation. Each step of the way builds on the skills and knowledge acquired in the previous stage and delivers a bridge to the next level.
The Pearson Edexcel iPrimary Curriculum
The first step, PearsonEdexcel iPrimary, is designed especially for English Language Learners (ELL) who are studying the majority of their curriculum subjects in English. Beginning with Reception and continuing through Year 6, iPrimary takes the best approaches of a first language curriculum and combines them with ELL progression and support, ensuring that students will be well prepared for the second step - iLowerSecondary.
The Pearson Edexcel iLowerSecondary Curriculum
The second step, Pearson Edexcel iLowerSecondary, provides seamless progression from iPrimary to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in Years 7 through 9 by continuing to support English Language Learners (ELL) in order to access the full range of subjects taught in English.
The Pearson Edexcel International General Certificate of Secondary Education
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is perhaps the best known UK qualification as it provides the means to enter many competitive colleges and universities. It is also the best preparation for studying Advanced Level subjects. IGCSE tuition begins in Year 10 with externally moderated exams in Year 11. Edexcel International GCSEs are studied in over 55 countries worldwide and at over 350 independent schools in the UK. Available in more than 40 subjects, they are equivalent, grade for grade, to UK GCSEs.
Pearson Edexcel International Advanced Levels
Edexcel International Advanced Levels have been written to the highest standard, with the global learner in mind, and are recognised by universities across the world. Available in 19 popular subjects, they offer progression from International GCSEs and can be taken together with BTEC subjects for a wide selection of specialised study in preparation for university and career success.
