Sophia High School

Our Curriculum

Sophia High School provides an enriched online global education through the National Curriculum for England, utilising our partnership with the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC).

Partnerships with IPC and IMYC

Our Partnership with the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) enables us to deliver the broad and balanced UK National Curriculum, while at the same time balancing academic achievement, character development and the nurturing of a global perspective in our students.

 

We aim to offer a curriculum which stirs the imagination, fosters creativity, develops students' independence, critical thinking and inquiry skills and provides our students with the skills required for success in the 21st century.

Mission

At Sophia High School, the following subjects are offered as part of our blended learning programme, receiving daily live interactive lessons timetabled throughout the week:

Enjoyment of reading is at the heart of our approach to the English curriculum.  In English, we not only teach the fundamental skills of reading but also nurture children’s reading attitudes with the aim that all children read for pleasure and have access to a wide range of high interest texts.

  • Pupils are encouraged to become confident, articulate writers who understand that writing is a means of learning, shaping experience, exploring ideas and expressing feelings.
  • The teaching of grammar is also an integral part of all English lessons and children are taught how to punctuate and structure their writing correctly, becoming fluent and using the relevant terminology.

IPC / IMYC

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) are built on the foundations of the UK National Curriculum objectives in regards to the knowledge, skills and understanding that children should learn in Science, History, Geography, Computers, Technology, Music, Art, PE, Society and International Studies.

Learning Goals

These subjects are built into different thematic units of work, where they work independently yet interdependently with each other so that the students can talk about their learning through multiple perspectives.
The Learning Goals and the development of specific skills and competencies at the Primary and Secondary Levels help define what children are expected to know, what they should be able to do, and the understandings they will develop in their academic, personal and international learning. 

Education Opportunities

Education plays a significant role in ensuring that children are prepared for life in the 21st century and their roles as global citizens through increased engagement with global issues from leaders, teachers, children and the community.   
 
Our IPC and IMYC units contain a wealth of opportunities to dig deeper into issues such as sustainability, climate action, conservation, nutrition and well-being, whilst also developing children’s personal dispositions and international mindedness.
