Senior School Curriculum

At Baobab College we offer the widest curriculum in Zambia. The Senior School curriculum is split into 3 stages and prepares students for University admission throughout the world. The first is Years 7 to 9, where students take the following subjects: English, Maths, Science, French, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Art, Design and Technology, Food Technology, Music, Information Technology and Physical Education.

In Years 10 and 11 students follow the IGCSE curriculum culminating in examinations assessed by Cambridge International Assessment and Pearson Edexcel. Additional subjects are introduced here including: Accounting, Business Studies, Literature in English, Travel and Tourism, as well as the three separate science subjects. Students will typically take nine subjects at this stage in which English, Maths, French and Literature are compulsory.

An introduction to the IGCSE curriculum by staff and former students as available on the IGCSE Options microsite. Visit the IGCSE Options site.

The final stage of Senior School is Senior College, where students will take three (or in exceptional circumstances four) subjects, as they work towards AS and A level examinations; Psychology and Economics are added to the curriculum at this stage.
