Secondary Program Overview

Students continue to learn MOET subjects combined with Cambridge Lower Secondary Curriculum subjects (Math, Science) and English with IMYC.
When students reach the upper secondary stage, they have two distinct pathways to choose from. They can opt for the MOET program with an intensive English component, leading to the attainment of the MOET diploma and an IELTS score of 6.5 or higher. Alternatively, they can pursue the Cambridge IGCSE/AS/A-Levels track.
Teaching and learning is at the core of academic opportunity and success at Sedbergh School. We are proud of our exam results but we always prefer to focus on the individual progress our pupils make. We offer a broad curriculum to match the needs of our pupils, and we are proud that the vast majority are accepted by their first-choice university.

Lower Secondary (Grade 6-12)

Sedbergh Vietnam offers a comprehensive and enriching curriculum that empowers students with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to excel academically and in their personal development. Our curriculum encompasses a range of subjects, each designed to foster a lifelong love of learning and critical thinking.

We aim to provide students with a solid foundation that prepares them for success in higher education and equips them with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate an ever-evolving world.

IGCSE (Grade 9-10 or year 10-11)

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education is a two-year course in grade 9 and 10 (or Years 10-11 in British education). They are the world’s most popular international qualification for 14–16-year-olds. Sedbergh Vietnam students follow a tailored pathway based on the Cambridge curriculum to align with each student’s strengths and passion.

Studying a broad range of subjects and building on the subjects studied at lower secondary, these courses lay the foundations for students wishing to study at A-level standards. Students will study a minimum of 5 IGCSEs, including Math and English. During the program, students will gain a deeper understanding of the subjects and develop strong motivation and self-discipline to help them progress academically.

A Levels (Grade 11-12 or Year 12-13)

Advanced’ or A Levels are two-year courses taken in grade 11 – 12 (or years 12-13 in British education).  As Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) courses, they are widely recognized by universities internationally as high-quality qualifications. A Levels provides a solid foundation for university students and is often seen as equivalent to the first year of university study.

Students are normally required to study 3 subjects, as that is what many universities require and a maximum of 5. The program is extremely flexible, allowing students to focus on the areas that interest them. Normally, the choice of subjects is related in some ways, such as math and science combinations, for those students wishing to pursue a medicine or engineering degree.

While the number of subjects may appear fewer than other programs, the depth of detail students can study gives them a bigger advantage when attending university. They become adaptive and in-depth independent learners, which is critical to success in their future academic studies. The program is well-established and fully supported, with excellent academic resources available.
Sedbergh Vietnam will offer a range of subjects so that students can choose the combination that best suits and delivers their needs.
