Middle Years

Middleton Grade 6 to Grade 10 Programme
Ages 12 to 16

Building on the robust foundation established in Primary, our Cambridge Lower Secondary curriculum used in Grades 6 to 8 is designed as a gateway to link the in-depth knowledge, skills and understanding picked up in the Middleton Primary Years to the Cambridge IGCSE subjects undertaken in Grades 9 and 10. Middleton is a registered Cambridge International School in Singapore.

Middleton uses the Cambridge Lower Secondary Curriculum for Grades 6 to 8. It helps prepare students for the next step of their education, providing a clear path as they progress through the Cambridge Pathway in an age-appropriate way.

The world-class Cambridge Lower Secondary curriculum is based on international best practices for schools and is dedicated to developing learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. Each curriculum framework is designed to engage learners in an active and creative learning journey. It allows students to explore a wide range of subjects, fostering critical thinking, creativity, and a lifelong love of learning. With experienced educators and a curriculum that emphasises both academic excellence and holistic development, we ensure students have a strong foundation to take on the Cambridge IGCSE and International A-Levels in the years to come.

As students progress to the Cambridge IGCSE Programme in Grades 9 and 10, they delve deeper into subjects of their interest, gaining a deeper understanding and mastery. The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum is recognised worldwide for its rigorous standards and balanced approach. It encourages students to think critically, communicate effectively, and develop the skills necessary to succeed in a globalised world. Our dedicated teachers provide personalised guidance to help students achieve their academic goals.

The Cambridge-approved IGCSE Programme is the world's most popular international qualification for 14- to 16-year olds because:

  • An externally set, marked, and certificated examination from the University of Cambridge, the IGCSE holds students to internationally recognised standards.
  • Many leading universities and employers globally recognise the IGCSE results, giving students a wide range of options in their education and careers.
  • Taking the IGCSE in Singapore allows for a smooth and easy transition when students transfer to another international school overseas.
  • The IGCSE also provides excellent preparation for further study at the Cambridge International A-Levels (Advanced Level) in Grades 11 and 12, a recognised international qualification for university application.
  • A good grade (i.e. C or above) in IGCSE English as a Second Language is accepted as evidence of adequate English proficiency by almost all UK universities and many in the USA, Canada and Australia.

The Cambridge IGCSE helps learners develop knowledge, understanding and skills in subject content and applying them to unique real-world situations. It promotes the ability to make intellectual inquiries, be flexible and adaptable to changes, work and communicate in English, influence outcomes, and be culturally aware.
