Upper Secondary

Upper Secondary students follow a four-year programme that combines Cambridge IGCSEs (two years) and A Levels (two years) alongside the Green Shoots Global Citizenship Certificate (four years).

International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)

Offered since 2015, the Green Shoots IGCSE programme is well established and has a track record of excellence. IGCSEs are:

IGCSE English (First Language)

IGCSE English (Foreign Language)


IGCSE Coordinated Science

IGCSE Global Perspectives

IGCSE Environmental Management

IGCSE Languages (Self Study)

Languages (Taught)

Global Learning ‘Elective’

Health & Physical Education (HPE)

A Levels / IB Diploma

The second half of the Green Shoots Upper Secondary academic programme will launch in 2022, offering A Levels and an opportunity for children in central Vietnam to continue their education without leaving their family. The programme will use a hybrid approach that combines the benefits of on-site and online learning to give students both face-to-face teaching and access to a wide range of subjects and an extensive community of peers around the world.

In addition to class-based teaching, students will study online through the Cambridge Education affiliated and approved Pamoja. They will select an elective A Level subject for study with a cohort of up to 35 other students from around the world. Available subject options through Pamoja are currently Psychology, Business, Accounting or Law, although this list will likely change with time.

The school will offer an A Level programme until its high school has grown enough to justify the development of an International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. We aim to be the first IB school in central Vietnam.
