At Westbourne College (Singapore) our mission is clear – to fully prepare students for dynamic leadership roles on the global stage – and our results speak for themself.
Our IGCSE course is uniquely tailored to support future excellence in the IB Diploma Programme. Delivered in a small, caring environment, students use experimentation, critical thinking, creativity and imagination to build resilience and practical skills, alongside a strong foundation of academic knowledge that they can apply to real-world situations.
This impressive grounding provides students with a head-start in a range of competitive careers, and ensures that every pupil graduates Westbourne fully “Future Ready”.
One course, two pathways
The Westbourne College IGCSE Programme offers one course and two pathways for 14 – 16 year olds:
- Exam Pathway: Our traditional exam pathway is delivered in either one or two years, depending on age/ability. The IGCSE caters for fluent English speakers culminating in Cambridge IGCSE exams in May/June.
- EAL Pathway: A parallel foundational pathway with intensive English Language support is available for students who require EAL support prior to the IB Diploma. This pathway can also be joined mid-year and is developed specifically for second language English speakers.
We provide a student-centered environment focused on innovation and discovery. Characterised by small classes and tutorial-style teaching, our year-round intake for our IGCSE programme fully prepares students for future success.
A breadth of subject choices and extension activities are offered, complementing those studied during the IB Diploma Programme, with EAL support available if required.
We are immensely proud of our British heritage, and our wider global mission is to provide Westbourne students with the best possible preparation for the pursuit of international business, entrepreneurship and STEM pathways.
Our IGCSE students benefit from many of the programmes and initiatives which are available to IB Diploma students. There are some points to be aware of, specifically regarding the IGCSE course, designed for students typically aged 14 – 16 years:
- IGCSE Singaporean students: The IGCSE course is a secondary school equivalent course, and our team will support you with applying to the Ministry of Education. The MOE requirement does not apply to the IB Diploma Programme, neither is it required for eligible international students.
- International students: This course is open to all students with a dependent pass, or resident permit.
