Wycherley International School
Wycherley is the first International School in Sri Lanka to offer a total Cambridge experience from Primary to Secondary level and to be classified as a "Cambridge Centre". It now offers Cambridge Programmes from Year 1 to Year 13. This gives a great impetus to enhance the teaching and learning process at the school, as both teachers and students have continuity by following the Cambridge Programme throughout their studies. At Wycherley the Cambridge curriculum consists of 5 main subjects; namely English, Maths, Science, ICT (Information Communication Technology) & Global Perspectives.
The Cambridge International Primary Programme, gives schools a framework to develop Mathematics, English and Science skills and knowledge in young children. The Primary Programme provides guidance for curriculum development and classroom teaching and learning and allows teachers to assess children’s learning, as they progress.
As a foundation for Secondary Education, the Primary Programme aids the identification of a student’s strengths and weaknesses and can be used to support learning and development.
The Primary Programme ensures that students progress seamlessly into middle-year curricula, such as Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme, O/Level.
As an International Programme, it provides teachers with an external benchmark to aid their teaching and easily measure student’s progress over time. It also allows detailed, structured reporting to parents.
Appropriate and relevant internationally, the Primary Programme has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top- quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning in Local and International Schools. Given its flexibility, it also complements a range of teaching methods and curricula and provides a route, students can follow from the post- kindergarten stage to University entrance.
