International Primary Curriculum
Invictus utilizes the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which is the curriculum of choice of over 1,800 schools in 90 countries around the world. At the heart of the IPC is a set of rigorous and holistic subject, personal and international learning goals. Connecting learning across these goals, are more than 130 theme and topic-based units of learning.
Subject goals in the IPC curriculum include Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Social Studies, Creative Arts, Physical Education, Language Arts and Information & Communication Technology. Invictus supplements the IPC with rigorous courses in English, Mandarin and Singapore Mathematics.
Each subject covers goals relating to the child’s knowledge, skills and understanding of the subject, personal goals that are important in the 21st century, and international learning goals which help the child gain a perspective that is national, international and intercultural. Opportunities to practice learning goals are built into the learning tasks and they include the personal goals of resilience, enquiry, thoughtfulness, cooperation, adaptability, respect, communication and morality. With the IPC, children are part of an international community of schools and students who have access to an online information-sharing space for international collaboration.
With over 40 nationalities on our campuses, our teachers recognize the importance of an inclusive environment and help ensure every student is known and that their learning needs are met.
Cambridge International Primary
The Cambridge Primary Curriculum is founded on the values of the University of Cambridge and the best practice in schools.

The objectives detail what the learner should know or what they should be able to do in each year of primary education. The curriculum provides a structure for teaching and learning and a reference against which learners' ability and understanding can be checked. The Cambridge Primary Curriculum promotes an inquiry-based approach to learning to develop thinking skills and encourage intellectual engagement.
