IGCSE + Nigerian Curriculum
WASSCE and NECO Examination Preparation
The Nigeria Educational Research Development Council (NERDC) has said it would reduce education curriculum to meet with the international best practice and standards. Though the curriculum is compressed at all levels of basic education, quality will be maintained
Strategy and Standards
The Olumawu Nigerian-Cambridge Crosswalk Document was created by Olumawu’s educators and allows our educators to develop thematic units and implement instructional strategies that will lead to mastery of both Nigerian and Cambridge Standards. Educators utilize the documents to ensure that each unit and lesson is standards focused and mastery driven.
Weekly assessment, data analysis, and intervention strategies are used in each academic level to guide students’ to mastery of standards before the end of each school year. As students progress through each grade level, mastering the staircase of complexities for each standard, they are prepared to pass not only Nigerian external examinations, but also all national examinations.
High Quality Child Care
Our first objective is to ensure each child settles into the new environment, gets to know their teacher and socialize with peers. It is equally important they are confident and happy. Once they adjust, it will not take students long to progress rapidly. Days are filled with experiences that will develop them academically, socially, spiritually and emotionally using their natural talents, abilities and skills: social, artistic, sporting and musical – becoming aware of their role as global citizens.
Moving to the Next Level
Lower Basic (1-3): Emphasis is placed on further developing pupils’ language, reading ability and number handling skills. Pupils are introduced to a range of other subjects which continue to awaken their curiosity and eagerness to learn.
Upper Basic (4-6): The curriculum is sufficiently broad to ensure that each student has the opportunity to identify his/her own interests and strengths and to keep his/her options open for as long as possible. In JSS1 and JSS2 students study a full range of academic subjects, fifteen subjects in total, taught by specialist teachers.
Moving to the Next Level
Students spend six years in Secondary School. By Senior Secondary School Class 2 (SS2), most students are taking the GCE O’Levels exam, to prepare for the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination. The Senior Secondary School ends on the WASSCE.
