Invictus brings top class international education at accessible prices to Cambodia

The future of any nation depends on how well the next generation is prepared to meet the challenges of a fast-changing world.

Invictus, an independent co-educational international school, offers top-quality global education at an accessible cost for students to meet these challenges.

The international school has a proven track record in providing quality, holistic education with an international curriculum that is based on Singapore’s world-class system.

Two of their noteworthy hallmarks are that it offers classes in three languages – English, Khmer and Simplified Chinese – as well as teaching the Singapore Mathematics Curriculum.

With the growing trend of globalisation and internationalisation, multi-linguistic ability is critical so that students have a competitive edge to help them stand out among peers.

At Invictus, the medium of instruction is English – the international lingua franca used for communication across the globe.

For the Kingdom’s expatriates and Cambodians, it is critical to be able to speak, read and write in Khmer.

Chinese is also becoming increasingly important as at least 16 per cent of the world’s population speak the language.

The Singapore Mathematics model is well-known internationally and has been adapted for use in at least 25 countries, including the USA and Britain. It is already proven to be a very successful teaching approach with its focus on problem-solving and heuristics.

In this syllabus, children are taught the ‘Three-step Learning Process’ where they enjoy teaching methods ranging from the concrete to pictorial and the abstract.

This means that students have an authentic, hands-on learning experience whereby they actually feel and see the objects of their lessons.

The syllabus also allows lessons to be followed by drawing graphic representations of mathematical concepts before proceeding to solve problems in an abstract way.

Learning objectives are focused on providing students with problem-solving capabilities, as well as practical and critical thinking skills that will help them solve real world problems.

In Cambodia, Invictus offers the UK International Primary Curriculum (IPC) from Year 1 to Year 6 (Primary) and the UK International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) from Year 7 to 8, in addition to the Singapore Mathematics curriculum. Students from Year 9 to 10 will benefit from the Cambridge Inter­national General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) curriculum and subsequently prepare for the Cambridge International A Level qualifications in Year 11 and 12.

The IPC is a comprehensive, thematic, and creative curriculum with a clear process and specific learning goals.

The thematic approach helps children understand how subjects are both independent and interdisciplinary, enabling them to make connections across disciples and discuss topics from multiple perspectives.

It also nurtures a global outlook and encourages independent learning that focuses on 21st century skills and competencies which students will need in order to thrive in today’s technological advancement and smart cities.

In terms of affordability, Invictus offers high quality global education at an accessible cost of $8,000 per year.

Cambodia has a sizeable middle-class; for parents who value quality education, the school is confident that it can provide world-class education given its proven track record in Singapore.

Invictus will ensure a quality all-round education utilising its best practices from its experience establishing various campuses from Singapore and Hong Kong to Phnom Penh.

In addition to incorporating high quality teaching materials, Invictus also recruits exceptionally experienced and committed teachers who have strong leadership in order to nurture students in a conducive learning environment.

With access to modern classroom equipment, high quality teaching materials and forward-looking curriculum, students will have a robust and meaningful experience while learning relevant life skills enabling them to succeed in their working life.
