Cambridge Curriculum

Wise Oaks International School is a Cambridge School.
Wise Oaks International School (Wise Oaks) is the perfect environment for students in Grades 1 to 8 to develop their inherent curiosity into a passion for lifelong learning. Reflecting our international context, our (Cambridge) curriculum draws from the best global primary and lower secondary school curricula and is delivered within the Cambridge International curriculum’s framework. Teaching instruction caters to each student’s needs, abilities and learning styles, resulting in a community of happy, confident, and engaged learners.

The Cambridge international curriculum sets a global standard for education and is recognized by universities and employers worldwide. Our curriculum is flexible, challenging, and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach. Cambridge students develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. They also gain the essential skills they need for success at university and in their future careers.

Cambridge programs combine an emphasis on mastering subjects in-depth with the development skills for study and work in the future. Deep subject knowledge as well as the conceptual understanding that helps students make links between different aspects of a subject is highly valued. Students are encouraged to develop higher-order thinking skills - problem-solving, critical thinking, independent research, collaboration, and presenting arguments. These are transferable skills that will last a lifetime, preparing students for their future lives. They also make learning enjoyable and rewarding.

The Wise Oaks' Cambridge curriculum starts our learners on an exciting educational journey. It provides a strong foundation for students at the beginning of their schooling before progressing through the rigors of secondary curriculum in an age-appropriate way. We provide a broad and balanced education for our learners, helping them to thrive throughout their schooling, work, and life. Teaching instruction caters to each student’s needs, abilities and learning styles, resulting in a community of happy, confident, and engaged learners. 

Wise Oaks offers Cambridge Primary curriculum from Grades 1-6.  We believe education works best when curriculum, teaching, learning, and assessment align. Cambridge Primary prepares students for the next stage by developing knowledge, understanding and skills across the programme.

We offer Cambridge Lower Secondary Curriculum for Grades 7-8. Our lower secondary programme is part of the Cambridge Pathway. The pathway leads seamlessly from lower secondary to upper secondary and pre-university years. Each stage builds on the learners’ development from the previous one or from other educational systems.

All our teaching and learning are infused with passion and enjoyment. This curriculum framework ensures that education will be relevant to life beyond the school. Wise Oaks provides educational experiences that will make learning come alive for students. Our curriculum extends beyond formal learning areas and helps learners to develop the capability and the confidence in applying what they know, to day-to-day problems and issues in a self-managed manner.

Wise Oaks unique curriculum offering includes:

Singapore Mathematics

The Singapore mathematicsis known for its highly effective teaching approach originally developed by Singapore’s Ministry of Education for Singapore public schools. The method has been widely adopted in various forms around the world over the past twenty years. As per a recent study, Singapore students ranked among the top performers outperforming their peers from 71 other countries in International Math competitions. At Wise Oaks International school, we have opted for Singapore maths because we think that all our students and parents should have access to this effective teaching and learning approach. All our programs preserve the techniques, sequencing, and rigour that define Singapore math.

Get Reading Right (GRR)

Another dominant program offered by Wise Oaks is the ‘Get Reading Right’ program.In our Get Reading Right program, the integrated phonics approach teaches your child to form word sounds by blending phonemes (i.e., the smallest unit of sound) and graphemes (i.e., a way of writing phonemes). As your child learns to better understand the text, he/she begins to read and write more confidently, he/she will bebetter able to express thoughts, ideas and emotions when communicating with others.
With the Wise Oaks GRR program, your child will continue building on the five essentials of reading development. With more developed skills, your child will be exposed to a wide range of text formats and learn to read independently.

Global perspective

The subject, Global Perspectives at Wise Oaks is a stimulating course that stretches across traditional subject boundaries and develops transferable skills. It is both cross-curricular and skills-based and taps into the way learners of today enjoy learning, including team work, presentations, projects, and working with other learners around the world. The emphasis is on developing the ability to think critically about a range of global issues where there is always more than one point of view.
True to its name, Wise Oaks places an emphasis on the wholesome growth of a learner instead of emphasizing only specific parts of human experience.Wise Oaks International School, with its Cambridge curriculum enhanced by Singapore Math, and the Get Reading Right Program provides its students the best of both worlds.
