The Curriculum

The curriculum from Nursery to Year 5 is largely based upon the UK National Curriculum with suitable modifications and is tailored to suit the local linguistic and cultural traditions. It lays the foundation for students wishing to pursue Primary, Lower Secondary, IGCSE, AS and A levels through Edexcel. The syllabus as prescribed by Edexcel is followed for Primary, Lower Secondary, IGCSE, AS and A levels leading to the Edexcel International Examinations.


Curricular Specialty

Student strength in each class is a maximum of 15 to ensure personal care and attention.


Fast and Not so fast learners

We recognize and admit that there are individual differences among students. Some learn faster while some take little more time to grasp a concept or proposition. We endeavor not to slow down the fast learner by encouraging him/her to learn at his/her normal speed, while at the same time the not-so-fast learners are paid additional attention and care to enhance his/her learning skills and understanding levels.


Examination & Assessment

The British system of continuous assessment is followed. Each child is assessed every term for understanding, skills, questioning, thinking and creativity. Parents will receive a full report for their child for each subject, every term. Further, students are assessed for their level and style of learning through exercises and discussions on each concept taught during the previous day / week. This helps the teacher in getting regular feedback and student getting practice of answering and solving problems. Assessment papers are similar to and modeled on the Statutory Assessment tests of U.K.

Children work in classes of mixed age and ability. They are encouraged to learn at their own pace and a differentiation policy is followed, with more able children being given more challenging studies and work sheets, and other children being provided with appropriate academic support.

Following the British system, children are moved into the ‘year’ appropriate to their learning levels. However they may be learning certain subjects at a level which is either higher or lower according to their ability and small class sizes enable teachers to set work that is appropriate for each child.


Parent-Teacher Interaction
  • Parents can meet the Principal between 9.00 am and 4.00 pm. by fixing an appointment with the office.
  • Students can meet the Principal in the office.
  • Parents can meet the subject teachers on Thursdays, after class hours, by prior appointment.
  • There will be one parents meeting per term. Parents can meet the teachers and discuss progress of their children’s work.
  • Day to day communication: The role of parents in a child’s education is highly valued by TBISC. Constant and effective communication between parents and TBISC is vital to the success of our educational programmers. Parents are requested to keep close touch by using the diary as a communication link and attend all parents meetings / functions to encourage your child.
