Senior School

Years/Standard 10-11 (Ages 14-16)


Acknowledging that our students are growing into young adults, Hebron provides students a well-rounded education and opportunities. Senior school years are focused on providing a holistic and secure learning environment, helping students reach their potential socially, emotionally, spiritually, creatively and academically.

Developing enquiring minds to think creatively stimulates learning experiences and decision-making abilities; encouraging faithful hearts creates space for developing spiritual perspectives, taking a position, and having compassion for others.

At the end of middle school year (i.e. Standard 9) students are required to choose subjects to study for external examination at the end of Standard 11. Senior school year courses lead to foundational qualifications called International General Certificates of Secondary Education (IGCSE); in each subject. Students are encouraged to strive for excellence by taking responsibility for their own learning. Participating in personalised learning experiences that are demanding and thought provoking in the senior school, promoting an enquiry-based mindset and innovative thinking. 

While pursuing IGCSEs, students in Senior School engage in a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as inter-house sporting events, debates, and quizzes. Students are encouraged to participate in music ensembles, choirs, and other programs both at school and public events. They compete in inter-school competitions against other schools in the Nilgiris in football, basketball, volleyball, badminton, hockey, cricket, swimming, and many other sports. The Drama Festival is another highlight where they can express themselves creatively.
