For high performing schools, The Hearth designs a bespoke curriculum, encompassing the totality of experiences that students will receive through the many activities that will go on in the school, in the classroom, library, laboratory, workshop, playgrounds and in the numerous informal contacts between teachers and students.
An important aspect related to the curriculum is the choice of examinations offered by the school, which will draw upon the requirements of the school curriculum as well as the need to ensure progression of students from the school to the best higher education institutions around the world. The Hearth, through its close association with international examination agencies is ideally positioned to determine the appropriate mix of examinations offered by the school.
The Hearth has experience and expertise in devising curricula and a variety of syllabus options for school examination boards, as well as bespoke curriculum options for high-performing schools. The focus is on using learning and instructional design to develop learning experiences that drive institutional goals and are centred on the students.
Our services include evaluation of existing curricula and syllabuses, as well as end-to-end curriculum design. We use a systematic approach to blend the school’s objectives with the requires of the national curriculum and examination imperatives, through mapping content to learning objectives. The teacher is the focus of instructional activities, while the student is the centre of learning experiences.
