We offer the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education), Indian Curriculum. The KG offers a modified EYFS (UK) curriculum with Indian and UAE cultural influences. The Primary School also maps its curriculum against the UK National Curriculum but also prepares students for entry to the CBSE curriculum. The CBSE curriculum is developed throughout the Secondary School with subjects options chosen before entry into G9 for the CBSE X exams. Students then choose their subjects in combinations that will give them the best opportunities to follow higher education courses in business and commerce, engineering, medicine or the creative and performing arts after successfully completing their the CBSE XII exams. Alternative pathways into higher education globally are being pursued and the Springdales is seeking KHDA approval to offer IGCSE and AS/A2 levels and vocational programmes to meet the needs of students seeking alternatives to a strictly academic pathway to higher education and/or employment. Careers education advice begins in G8 to assist students and families to make informed decisions about the best possible combinations of subjects and courses. It will not be possible to mix pathways, although the teaching of some content may be shared. Assessment methods are different according to which pathway is selected.
