Our core subject areas are:
Our students participate in term-long learning expeditions that cover standards in a wide range of subjects. Learning expeditions are created in response to current challenges and difficulties, which may be local or international. This type of learning is challenging and enjoyable, and it calls for the growth of personal accountability, teamwork, openness, self-awareness, creative thinking, and problem-solving skills.
We have a special capacity to conduct learning expeditions that investigate the socioeconomic dynamics, geography, and cultures of Amritsar, Punjab, and India.

Our Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) programme is an integrated approach to studying multiple subjects to examine a theme, issue, question or topic. IDS forms the foundation of our Expeditionary Learning programme.

It is also a great way for students to ‘connect the dots’ between subjects, train flexible brains, create personal meaning, and find comprehensive solutions to real-world problems. IDS courses can explore diverse aspects within a subject area, or look at a topic or issue that cuts across different subjects.
All courses centre on:
