Suncity School ‘International Academia’
Suncity School is delighted to announce the initiation of the ‘International Academia’ to prepare our students for the increasingly globalised society. We are an authorised University of Cambridge IGCSE school and a Candidate School, awaiting authorisation of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme. The launch of the International Section will coincide with our Mothers’ Day celebrations on Saturday 14th May. The especially selected international section team will be led by Mr Sidney Rose FRSA our newly arrived International Academic Head. We are currently accepting Admissions for Grades 9 .
The IB programme will begin in August 2017 and Cambridge IGCSE is excellent grounding and preparation – the perfect springboard.
We already run a number of International Exchange Programmes and collaborations in UK and elsewhere and engage in much global Community Service related work as well as a local community school.
Education for Life in the 21st Century
At Suncity School we prepare our students to live and work in the today’s ever-increasing global society with its’ ever ever-changing challenges and sometimes difficult choices. We aim to equip them with the ability to recognise pattern and contexts in the world – empowering them to understand and interpret easily, to make the right decisions and choices and deeply broaden their wisdom, skills and perception of the world they inhabit today. We wish our students to make a positive contribution to society and enjoy a happy and fulfilling life. Sun City School strongly believes in the international exchange of ideas, students and staff as key elements in preparing students for life in todays’ global society – in “sadaiva agrani” and “sanskarr” to help them succeed in Life.
University of Cambridge IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education)

The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum offers a variety of routes for students with a wide range of abilities, including those whose first language is not English. There is a foundation of core subjects and the curriculum has a breadth and cross-curricular perspectives. We will be encouraging students to engage with a variety of subjects, and make connections between them. – That is fundamental to the Sun City School transversal and transdisciplinary approach to learning.
Cambridge IGCSE helps improve students’ performance by developing skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving.
There are over 70 subjects available at Cambridge IGCSE. Our students will be expected to take a minimum of 7 subjects from those offered and a maximum of 10. Additional certificates can be added at further examination sittings. Students will pay a fee for each examination sat.
