The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum offers a variety of routes for learners with a wide range of abilities, including those whose first language is not English.
Cambridge IGCSE offers a flexible and stimulating curriculum, supported with excellent resources and training. For learners, Cambridge IGCSE helps improve performance by developing skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving. It is the perfect springboard to advanced study.
Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:
Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as unfamiliar situations
Flexibility and responsiveness to change
Working and communicating in English
The syllabuses are international in outlook, but retain a local relevance. They have been created specifically for an international student body and avoid cultural bias.
We also offer Danish Mother Tongue lessons to pupils with spoken Danish at mother tongue level. We follow the guidelines set out in the Ministry of Education’s “Fælles Mål” for Danish. The final exam at the end of Secondary is “Folkeskolens Afgangsprøve for 9. klasse”.
All Danish mother tongue lessons, in both Primary and Secondary, have this common goal.
To ensure that students at ISIB have the best possible chance of success, we use a number of evaluative measures to ensure student progress takes place throughout their time in the school. You can read about this in our curriculum evaluation by clicking this link.
