NVS HIGH SCHOOL

Established in 2012, NVS is one of Khartoum’s leading schools. We are extremely proud of our growing and innovative High School which offers a socially relaxed yet highly academically disciplined environment.


Cambridge IGCSE
NVS offers one of the largest IGCSE programs in Khartoum. Taught by the top experts in their field, subjects include mathematics, English for Second Language Learners, English Language, biology, chemistry, physics, accounting, business studies, sociology, Global Perspectives, environmental science and economics. Students may take between seven and nine subjects. Our first graduating class was 2018. We achieved excellent results with no failures in any subject area.

Cambridge International AS and A-levels
NVS’s next phase of development. For the 2019-20 school year, NVS will be offering a selection of AS and A Level courses. These examinations are a gold start standard that allow thousands of learners worldwide to gain places at leading universities every year. The syllabuses develop a deep understanding of subjects and independent thinking skills. At NVS, subjects available will include psychology, mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, Arabic, accounting, economics, business studies, sociology ,geography, ICT and English Language.

Assessment and Progress
We design our assessments to be fair, valid, reliable and practicable based on Cambridge standards. We assess what we know to be of value: deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding, and higher-level thinking skills. Our flexible assessment structure maximizes time for teaching and learning. Each student is assigned to Home Room teacher, whose role is to assist the administration in supervising students’ academic progress, and general welfare. Regular individual, meetings are held to discuss test results, progress in class, homework college applications and reports. Parents are kept fully informed of their child’s progress through a variety of methods that include regular parent-teacher meetings, written reports and individual contact.

Academic Support
Students are offered ongoing support in study skills and exam preparation programs. Our caring teachers are on hand to provide extra lessons if required and also to offer weekly study halls to promote learning competence. Differentiated instruction and meeting the individual needs of each students are important components of the NVS High School program.

Academic Counselling
Students who are studying in the upper part of school will receive college and academic counselling to ensure they make the right subject choices. College selection advice and application writing are part of the curriculum.

Extracurricular Activities
Apart from basketball and other sports activities, high school students are expected to complete 20 hours of practical community service. This may involve working in an orphanage or teaching English in a local school. We are also developing a one week internship program for our Grade 11 students to help them make thoughtful and insightful career choices. Recreational sports such as basketball and soccer are available, extra study support and a range of other activities including Student Council (STUCO). As part of our High School expansion, during 2018-19, we will also be offering ‘A Week Without Walls,’ experience. A ‘Week without Walls’ is a week of experiential learning that will be organized each school year for Grade 9 to 12. All of the trips involve the students in real world learning situations and builds on each individual’s social and emotional skills. Each trip also involves our students in different elements of service as action. In addition to the experiential learning experience students in the secondary school also undertake summative assessments as a direct result of the learning that occurs during the week.
