Yew Chung International School’s (YCIS) international curriculum is based on the framework and schemes of work from the National Curriculum for England (NCE). It is a research-based curriculum that allows high standards and ease of transition for international students who move from one country to another. It also ensures a smooth transition between different Key Stage levels through to graduation.
The focus in the Key Stage levels is to develop the student’s skills and abilities to work both independently and co-operatively, and to think critically. English is the primary language of instruction, but our schools also have a strong Chinese language study programme and students are expected to attain a high level of fluency in both oral and written English and Chinese.
Students may sit external examinations for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) at the end of Year 11. Upon successful completion of the IGCSE, students then enter the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13.
