Our Secondary School curriculum is designed to reflect the increasing
independence and freedom of our learners as they focus on Pearson
Edexcel IGCSE or the Somaliland GCSE examinations.
Our grade 9 curriculum offers intellectual challenge and balance with a
view to providing as broad a range of future opportunities as possible. It
lays the foundation for the IGCSE programmes that start in grade 10 and is
the year in which students make their subject choices.
Our impressive subject flexibility means that our curriculum offers the
space for each student to develop their interests and express their
individuality through a breadth of academically rigorous disciplines.
Some students who want to do the local Somaliland GCSE examinations will
also join form 2 class after undergoing our grade 9 programme. These
students then go through a separate arrangement which is recommended
by the Republic of Somaliland Ministry of Education.
Advanced Level (A-level)
The curriculum in the sixth form is designed to prepare the learners not
only for the A level examination but for life beyond ADBS.
A levels are a globally recognized qualification that facilitate entry into the
world’s leading universities. Students typically select three or four A level
subjects to study at Sixth Form.
Our Sixth Form curriculum is academically rigorous and designed to
recognize and reward depth in learning.
Our timetables are structured to provide students a greater level of
autonomy with their learning. Having selected subjects that they are
passionate about, students are afforded the time to read around their
subjects and gain a deeper understanding of the subject material that they
will be examined on.
All this takes place within a context of substantial support from our staff. In
addition, subject teachers ensure that students have the academic support
network they need to fulfill their potential.
