What are the IC Programmes for Learning?The IC Programmes for Learning (PfLs) are designed for use in independent prep and junior schools and cover all subjects from Year 3 to Year 9. The programmes can be used in their entirety or by individual subject; each programme is cohesive, incremental and focused on both preparation for senior school and preparation for life.
We understand that independent schools value their independence and teach the subjects they believe are important, adopting the teaching methods which they judge to be most effective. By definition, independent schools are not bound to one statutory curriculum; rather they are able to select elements from a rich plethora of national and international curricula, strategies and schemes, and blend them with the customs and values of a traditional prep school education.
The IC PfLs recognise the customs, values and common practices in prep and junior schools today and provide programmes of study which give prep and junior school teachers both the syllabus and schemes of work they need to ensure their pupils achieve entry into their first-choice senior schools and enjoy a creative, inspiring learning experience along the way.
