The curriculum followed throughout Lanna school is based on the British education system, a rigorous system of education admired and emulated by many countries throughout the world.
Our lower Secondary curriculum builds on the Primary curriculum and continues to develop skills and knowledge across a wide range of subjects. These three years form an important bridge from leaving the Primary school in Year 6 to beginning exam classes in Year 10.
During Years 7 to 9 all students at Lanna study: English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Computing, Art, Physical Education, Music, Drama, Personal Social & Health Education, Thai, and French or Chinese (taught by native speakers).
Students’ experiences during Years 7 to 9 enable them, towards the end of Year 9, to make informed decisions about the subjects that they will study at IGCSE level in Years 10 and 11.
Students in Years 10 and 11 follow externally set and assessed courses based around a highly regarded system known as the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). Students at Lanna are able to choose their IGCSE courses from a broad range of options.
Our IGCSE courses and examinations are provided by Cambridge University International Examinations (CIE). The two year programme of IGCSE courses is designed to develop high academic standards and they are academically demanding courses, leading to formally recognised IGCSE qualifications. The programme is globally recognised to be one of the best academically rigorous programmes of study for students of this age.
One of the most recognised and respected high school qualifications in the world, Cambridge International Advanced level (A level) is widely viewed as representing a “gold standard” and is accepted as proof of academic ability worldwide. Good grades at A level can be the key to admission to the world’s major English speaking universities.
