From October 2010, the CBSE has opted for the implementation of Continuous and
Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) in Class IX and X. This process of evaluation
includes and reflects all components of the personality of the student. It takes into
consideration, not only learning in scholastic areas, but also life skills, attitudes, values,
interests and achievements in co-curricular activities.
IGCSE is the international qualification for 14-16 year old students and is equivalent to
the Class X Board Examinations in India. The curriculum offers a broad range of
subjects both academic and vocational which helps students gain entry into a University

there is a lot of flexibility designed into the curriculum in terms of opportunities for

We vigorously strive to achieve excellence in academics by addressing all aspects of learning which include:
- Knowledge: The fact that the student should be able to recall to ensure
competence in the subject.
- Understanding: How the student will be able to interpret, apply or predict aspects
of the subject.
- Skills: How the student will be able to apply what has been learned in new
- Attitudes: How the student is changed by the learning experience.
The School provides the students with flexible opportunities of learning and expressing
themselves. Each classroom has an open area at the back for learning through activity,
both independently and collaboratively. Ample opportunities are given to the students to
develop skills in public communication via debate, elocution, dramatics and music.
