Our Curriculum Overview
A Commitment to Excellence

Basic education in Ghana consists of two main levels: primary education (Primary 1 to Primary 6) and junior high school education (JHS 1 to JHS 3).The curriculum is designed to be a continuum, with each level building on the foundation of the previous one.
Subjects and Content
The Ghana Education Service (GES) curriculum for basic schools is designed to provide a well-rounded education. It includes subjects like English, Math, Science, and various cultural and ethical components. This holistic approach aims to nurture academic, moral, cultural, and physical development in students, preparing them for active participation in society.
The GES curriculum prioritizes core competencies such as literacy, critical thinking, communication, ICT literacy, ethics, and civic education. This focus equips students with well-rounded skills and values, preparing them for academic success and meaningful contributions to society.
The GES curriculum encourages continuous assessment of students' progress through class assignments, quizzes, tests, and projects. Assessments are designed to be formative and diagnostic, helping teachers identify areas where students may need additional support.
Teacher Training and Professional Development
Kempshot has teachers that are provided with training and professional development opportunities to ensure they are well-equipped to deliver the curriculum effectively.
At the end of the primary and junior high school levels, students take the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) to assess their readiness for secondary education. The BECE is a high-stakes examination that determines students' placement into senior high schools
