The Senior School provides a rigourous academic education taught by highly qualified, knowledgeable and inspiring teachers through lively, active lessons. Students are challenged to think for themselves and to develop their minds independently. In the Senior School we pride ourselves on working closely with families and students to ensure that all children have high academic aspirations and achieve the success needed to ensure they can enter the foremost universities world-wide.
The curriculum at NLCS Jeju is based largely on that of NLCS London. In Key Stage 3 (years 7 to 9) departments write their own programmes of study that aim to provide students with the knowledge base and skills to take the subjects further, but also to develop a love of learning for that subject. In key Stage 4 (years 10 to 11), students work towards their IGCSE course, and in Key stage 5 (years 12 to 13) students follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.
At all times the curriculum at NLCS Jeju should seek to challenge, enthuse, and interest our students. We believe that the curriculum subjects have the power to fascinate young people. Lesson content should be up to date, based on the latest discoveries and understanding in each field. The stories behind the knowledge should be explored and subjects brought to life, that capture a student's imagination. We aim to engender students who have a passion for the subjects that they study and are motivated to learn through this passion.
The IB diploma philosophy is closely aligned with the aims of NLCS Jeju, with its emphasis on developing inquiring, internationally minded, caring young people. The rigour and breadth provided by the programme, the critical thinking and research skills that it develops, mean that it is recognised by the best universities in the world.
Through our curriculum we aim to develop an enthusiasm for learning in all of our students as they are challenged to develop their ideas and push their thinking further beyond classroom study. We want students to enjoy learning and develop a genuine passion for the subjects they study.
