Noble Hall Leadership Academy for Girls is an accredited Cambridge International Examination school and learners follow the Cambridge Secondary I Curriculum in the first three years of secondary education culminating in the Checkpoint examinations in English, Mathematics and Science. Learners begin a two year programme of study leading to IGCSE accreditation. The Academy where possible infuses local content into its curriculum thereby acknowledging the important role Nigeria plays in international matters.
The Academy is keen to add value to your daughter’s expected attainment and to this end every learner undertakes the Cognitive Assessment Test. This baseline assessment enables the Academy to know the potential of your daughter in terms of outcome at Checkpoint and IGCSE without placing a glass ceiling on expectation. Rather, it prevents your daughter from coasting unchallenged if she is a particularly able learner. Equally the ‘average learner’ will be set challenging but realistic academic targets to ensure that she has added value to her learning experience whilst placing realistic, objectively driven demands on every learner.
The formal curriculum is supported by a robust co-curricular programme and the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.
Noble Hall Leadership Academy for Girls is aligned to Cambridge International Examinations, and as such bases the age requirement on the education system in England.
