1.1 IB PYP Curriculum

International Community School Academic Year: 2013/14 Age: 3-11 Years ICS Primary School is located in central London and has 125 students in classes of 14-18 students. Our school day runs from 08.45-15.25 with a 14.10 finish on Fridays. From Year 3 upwards all children have the use of a netbook and all textbooks are provided by the School. Students have access to iPads and Kindles, and desktops for desktop publishing and film editing. Students with Special Educational Needs are very well supported. The School challenges each and every student by setting tasks, activities and inquiries at the level the child requires to make progress.

All children aged 3 -11 years old follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). The programme allows children to learn through the skills and knowledge of traditional subject areas such as Languages, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, the Arts, Personal and Social Education and Information Communication Technology. These subjects are taught through Units of Inquiry that provide opportunities for students to apply skills and knowledge. Classes from Year 1 to Year 6 are actively involved in six units of inquiry per year, each one lasting around six weeks in length. Nursery and Reception experience four units of inquiry throughout the whole year.

1.2 English Language Preparation Our Preparation course for 9, 10 and 11 year olds prepares students for entry into the full curriculum programme. Students study grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, reading and writing, and develop academic and everyday English. They also study a range of other academic subjects such as Humanities, Science and Mathematics. Children younger than 10 years of age enter the mainstream classroom directly with support provided in class.

2.1 IB Diploma

International Community School Academic Year: 2013/14 Age: 11-18 Years ICS Secondary School is located in central London and has 130 students in classes of 10-16 students. Our school day runs from 08.45-15.45 with a later finish at 16.30 for our Diploma students. Students have access to netbooks, iPads and Kindles, in addition to our brand new iMac music and film editing suite. Students with Special Educational Needs are well supported. By following the IB programme we have adopted a curriculum that not only focuses upon academic achievement but also looks at the whole child and their physical, social and emotional development through the teenage years.

For students aged 16-18 years, ICS offers the highly regarded IB Diploma programme. This internationally recognised programme comprises a standardised curriculum, moderated coursework and external examinations. IB Diploma courses are at least the equivalent of Advanced Placement courses in the USA and A Levels in the UK. The IB Diploma programme is widely accepted by Universities across the world, including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Princeton.

2.2 IB Middle Years Programme At our Secondary School campus, students aged 11 -16 years old follow the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). This is an academically challenging framework, with eight discrete subject areas (English, Modern Languages, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Arts, Technology, and Physical Education) that encourage students to embrace and understand connections between the subject content and the real world, while developing critical and reflective thinking skills. Also running through the programme are three central themes; intercultural awareness, holistic learning and communication.

Homestay Accommodation: Camden, Gloucester Gate & Hyde Park All our homestay hosts are selected by partner accommodation agencies which are specialised in providing suitable and appropriate accommodation for children. Hosts are chosen only after a strict application process, inspection and police checks. A safe, caring and clean home is more important than a location close to the schools. Generally homes are in London travel zones 2 and 3, with an average journey of 30-45 minutes to school on public transport, which can be up to 60 minutes in busy periods.

Parents, children and hosts are provided with 24 hour contact telephone numbers for the accommodation agencies and the schools. Each school has a dedicated staff member to assist you or your child with any problems or questions regarding accommodation. Children are asked regularly during their stay about their accommodation, the food and their happiness with the arrangements. All their feedback is read and followed up if necessary and feedback on hosts is recorded and monitored.

A1

Parent and Child Homestay Accommodation Parents are responsible for their own children outside school hours and in the accommodation. This means the parent is also responsible for the child travelling to and from school and when they arrive home from school. If the child is on the school bus the parent must be at home to greet them in the afternoon. Parent and child homestay includes breakfast and evening meal every day. Weekend lunch is not included. Homes are normally in London travel zones 2-3 but can also be in zone 4 from June to August.

Welfare in London Homestay Accommodation

Welfare in Residential Accommodation 24 hour emergency telephone numbers are issued to students and their parents as part of the Information Pack. A member of staff can be contacted at any time should students encounter any problem or difficulty. Medical support is always available, with First Aid trained staff on site. The school procedures – which the students are expected to follow - are explained to the students during the induction session on the first morning. The students and their welfare are our main priority. We maintain very close supervision of students at all times, to ensure their safety and well-being and that they obtain the maximum benefit from their course. Insurance We strongly advise you to take out your own travel insurance, but our course prices for juniors do include provision of a Travel, Medical and Course Fees Protection Insurance for students studying at Alexanders College, Camden and summer courses at any of our junior schools.

Exeter

A. Private Home

Adult Accommodation There is a choice of accommodation available in both London and Exeter.

London All our homestay/private home options have been selected by our homestay provider after inspection and chosen for the warmth of their welcome rather than their proximity to the schools. They are situated in residential areas of London from where the journey to school by public transport is straightforward. They reflect the multicultural aspect of Britain in general and London in particular. Although they can come from any number of ethnic backgrounds, English is the main language in the home. It is essential that you inform us of any special requests for your homestay (allergies, diet, pets, location) at the time of booking and we will do our best to match your requirements. A choice of accommodation for adults is available as follows:

Students who choose Private Home accommodation are provided with bed and breakfast. They are accommodated in homestay accommodation, but there is not much contact with the hosts. There can be up to 4 students staying in the house at the same time - but of different mothertongues (unless a specific request is made to the contrary). B. Homestay Accommodation Students in homestay accommodation have an evening meal in addition to Bed and Breakfast. As the evening meal is taken with the hosts, there is more contact - so more opportunity to practise their English. For this type of accommodation there may be up to 3 students at the same time - again of different mother-tongues unless a specific request is made to the contrary.

A. Private Home Students who choose Private Home accommodation are provided with Bed and Breakfast. They are accommodated in homestay accommodation, but there is not much contact with the hosts.

Students will be staying in homestay accommodation but will be able to cook their own food in the kitchen. They will be able to use all the kitchen equipment (pots, pans, cooker, etc.). There may be up to 4 students staying in the house at the same time - but of different mothertongues (unless a specific request is made to the contrary). D. Parent and child accommodation

Situated in a suburban location in Zone 4, within walking distance of a bus stop or train/underground station.

We can provide homestay accommodation for parents and children, but would point out that the parent is responsible for looking after the child outside school hours. The parent should either take the child to and from school, or be present in the house when the child leaves and returns on the minibus (if booked). The timetables in the adult and junior schools have been designed with this in mind.

Located in Zones 2 or 3 closer to the city centre, within walking distance of a bus stop or train/underground station.

It is essential that you inform us of any special requests for your homestay (allergies, diet, pets) at the time of booking and we will do our best to match your requirements.

C. Self-catering

Standard (Homestay, private home and self catering)

Superior (Homestay, private home and self catering)

The school accommodation officer inspects all host families before we place a student in the house. We choose our families based on the warmth of the welcome they give our students and how well they look after the student. Some host families are within walking distance of the school but some are a bus ride away. You can buy bus tickets in the school at very competitive prices.

B. Homestay Accommodation Students in homestay accommodation have an evening meal as well as Bed and Breakfast. As the evening meal is taken with the hosts, there is more contact, so more opportunity to practise their English. For this type of accommodation there may be up to 3 students at the same time, again of different mother tongues unless a specific request is made to the contrary. C. Student Residence

We are also able to arrange Flat Share, Hostels and Residential accommodation. Details available on request.

In conjunction with Unite, we offer a student residence in the city centre just 2 minutes walk from the school. You can choose between a large single room with a private bathroom or a single room with a shared bathroom. Kitchen area shared with other students. Laundry facilities on site, 24 hour security plus free broadband.

Welfare

D. Self Catering

All students are provided with a contact number in case of emergency and are assisted with general support for matters such as housing and opening a bank account. Insurance

Students in self-catering accommodation will be staying in homestay accommodation but will be able to cook their own food in the kitchen. They will be able to use all the kitchen equipment (pots, pans, cooker, etc.) - but would be expected to arrange a timetable for use of the kitchen with the hosts.

We strongly advise you to take out a Travel Insurance Policy before travelling to the United Kingdom as our prices for adults do not include insurance.

E. Shared Housing (Summer) During the months of July and August we have student homes available with private bedrooms - but shared self-catering and bathroom facilities.
