Super-curricular at The International School

Super-curricular at The International School

The Super-curricular programme at d’Overbroeck’s is a specially developed and vibrant academic enrichment programme for students seeking to explore their interests in greater depth outside the confines of their regular studies. At The International School, this includes TRACK, Higher Project Qualification (HPQ), and Wider Learning Days. 

Theory of Research, Active Citizenship and Knowledge (TRACK) programme 

Developed in-house and exclusive to d’Overbroeck’s International School, our TRACK programme supports students to develop a global mindset. It also equips them with the key skills they need to excel in their IGCSE, A-Level and higher education studies.

Higher Project Qualification (HPQ)

Available as an additional qualification for students to study as part of our 4 or 5-term, One or Two-Year IGCSE courses, the Level 2 HPQ is recognised as the equivalent of a full GCSE qualification.  

The HPQ requires students to study a topic area which expands their learning in an appropriate area of study. This helps them to develop key skills required for success at A-Level, IB and university such as: 

  • Independent study 
  • Critical thinking 
  • Academic research 
  • Active learning 
  • IT literacy 

Wider Learning Days

Our Wider Learning Days are a great way for students to develop their teamwork, research and presentation skills through group project work. Students take part in project challenges with pupils from other classes with whom they don’t usually work, responding to a brief by problem-solving and presenting their strategic thinking. Some recent Wider Learning Day projects have included designing a two-week package holiday and writing and dramatising a letter from a World War I soldier.
