International General Certificate of Secondary Education

IGCSE (Grade 9 and 10)

The Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is designed as a two-year curriculum programme leading to a Certificate which is internationally recognised by universities and employers worldwide as evidence of academic ability. The IGCSE years at Trio World Academy (TWA) are Grades 9 and 10, with external examinations held in Grade 10. It is a time which is critical for preparing the student for their next step, the IB Diploma Programme . By this age our pupils are becoming leaders in the international school, fulfilling the roles of young adults. They get involved in their community through projects, while in their school time they are encouraged to pursue all the activities that are offered, at academic, sporting and personal levels all the while staying focused on their goals. 

IGCSE is made up of compulsory core subjects which everyone studies, and a group of optional subjects. IGCSE students are expected to take 7 subjects and these are critical to their future opportunities to attend University. During this time our students develop as mentors, role models all the while offering peer support for the younger children in the school. Throughout their years at TWA, we guide them in laying a foundation for the creation of an adult who is comfortable articulating their views and taking on the responsibilities of a global citizen.
