Learning

Welcome to Secondary School of the
International School of Gabon, Ecole Ruban Vert.

For ERV Years 7, 8, 9 we follow the framework  provided by the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC).

Learning is based around themes, or ‘Big Ideas’, on topics such as Identity, Balance, Discovery, Renewal. These ‘Big Ideas’ are applied in the wide range of subjects we offer students. Students cover six Big Ideas per year. At the start of  each half termly topic students reflect on the given theme via an ‘Entry Point’. They then present their overall learning at the end of each half term through  an ‘Exit Point’ exhibition or project, which they share  with the rest of the Secondary school via our assemblies.

Years 10-11 IGCSE International General Certificate of Secondary Education (for students aged 14-16 years). ERV students in Years 10-11 follow the Edexcel IGCSE  examinations in all subjects (except Music and P.E. which are GCSE). Further information is available on the Edexcel IGCSE website.

Years 12-13 International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (for students aged 16-18 years). Please see the separate handbook for the IB Diploma pre university programme.
