International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE)

Arabian Pearl Gulf School is a Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Centre authorized to offer the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for 14-16 year olds. Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:

Subject content

  • Applying knowledge and understanding to familiar and new situations
  • Intellectual enquiry
  • Flexibility and responsiveness to change
  • Working and communicating in English
  • Influencing outcomes
  • Cultural awareness

Cambridge IGCSE is taken in over 100 countries worldwide and are widely recognised by higher education institutions and employers around the world as evidence of academic ability. Cambridge IGCSE is equivalent to the GCSE in the United Kingdom. In some parts of the world, schools use Cambridge IGCSE as an international alternative to the local government's examination.

Each learner's performance is benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades (A*-G). In some countries, IGCSE qualifications will satisfy the entry requirements for university. In others, they are widely used as a preparation for A Level, AS, International Baccalaureate and US Advanced Placement courses.

Grade C in IGCSE English (both First Language and Second Language) satisfies the English proficiency requirements of many universities in the UK and other anglophone countries.

One of the most crucial transition phases in the educational life of students around the world is the transition to middle and high school. This transition signifies a very challenging period for parents, educators, and school administrators. During middle and high school years, the main pillars of character are built. It is the period when students develop awareness about their own characters and insights related to global issues.

In middle and high school years, students are receptive to develop insights about other people’s cultures, religions, and traditions. With this in mind, our mission, vision, and well-balanced curriculum aim to help them become global citizens with international minds. They are consistently encouraged to develop global consciousness and care for the world community. The important global goals are integrated in our curriculum and school life. Students’ awareness is also developed towards leading a sustainable lifestyle congruent with the UNESCO sustainable development goals which focus on the whole well-being of the world community.

On the personal level of character development, we find opportunities for the students to lead happy and productive lives after school. We develop their emotional and social intelligence and engage them in various collaborative programs inside and outside the school to prepare them for life beyond it.

Working towards making the world a better place to live in, has been and will be our motto now and in the future.
