Students will also study a Language other than English. This will be one of either French, Spanish or Indonesian. CCS prides itself on offering flexible learning pathways for all academic needs.
The IGCSE programme is made up of classes from Year 10 to Year 11. We have two classes per year level. The maximum class size for this year level is 25 students; however, many of the class sizes are much smaller as they are optional subjects. Students learn through a stimulating, inquiry-based curriculum across content areas. Core subjects, such as English, Science and Maths, are usually split into 3 groups; sometimes these classes are ability based and in others are mixed ability, which again means that class sizes rarely get above 15 students.
Students in the IGCSE programme start school at 8:15am and end at 3:15pm. The day begins in their Pastoral Care (PC) class, which functions like an advisory classroom. Students have six 55-minute classes each day. They have a snack break at 10:30am and lunch at 12:45pm.
As well as their academic responsibilities, IGCSE students also have opportunities for greater responsibility in the school. Each PC classroom has a representative in the Student Council. IGCSE students are also able to take on more student council positions, such as secretary or treasurer. Students also participate in Gotong Royong initiatives. Gotong Royong, which is our weekly lesson focused on service-learning and community connection, is led by passionate and enthusiastic students, facilitated by teachers. Students can also join a variety of extracurriculars, including Model United Nations (MUN), South East Asia Mathematics Competition (SEAMC) and the incredibly exciting and prestigious Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
IGCSE students receive instruction in each subject from a teacher who is an expert in their content area. We continue to follow the inquiry-model established in the Primary School, putting students at the center of their learning.
Inquiry looks different in the IGCSE programme. In the Primary School, the Unit of Inquiry integrates all of the subjects. In IGCSE, each subject area creates its own units of work based around the Cambridge Assessment or Edexcel syllabus. Each unit has an essential question(s); with teacher support, students research questions, apply knowledge, make conclusions and reflect on their learning.
Students studying Art, Music, Drama and Design & Technology will have the opportunity to showcase their talents on various occasions throughout the two-year programme. IGCSE students undertaking coursework will also have the opportunity to showcase their amazing work to parents when it is nearing completion at the end of semester 1 in Year 11.
Students are invited to join a variety of clubs, including Model United Nations (MUN), the Global Initiatives Network (GIN) Conference, South East Asian Mathematics Competition (SEAMC), Student Council, and the Events Committee.
Students can join the Yearbook Committee or the Magazine Committee to create long-lasting documents shared within our school community.
In the 1st semester, a large number of students are involved in our Secondary production. Actors, backstage crew, lighting and sound technicians, set and costume designers, and more, work for months to stage a fantastic show for the entire school community. This is one of the highlights of the year!
The Swimming Carnival, the School Cross-Country Race and Sports Day are events for our students to engage in fitness for enjoyment and demonstrate positive sportsmanship during competition with peers.
In Term 3, we celebrate the unique Balinese festival of Nyepi. During the year, we also celebrate other cultural festivals, such as Chinese New Year and Idul Fitri.
Here at CCS, we aim to offer a comprehensive and varied IGCSE programme taught by highly-experienced international teachers.
