Welcome to 7Hills International School | By Bonita Kwizera and Deborah Isharaza

 

7Hills is a new International Secondary School – the first and only school in Kampala that focuses specifically on middle years education and the only school to offer the fantastic IMYC Curriculum. The school has a superb central location in Kololo, just off Lugogo Bypass opposite the Lugogo Sports Stadium: students have full access to all the sporting facilities at the sports stadium – both for field and indoor sports. 7Hills understands the critical role of sports in the development and well-being of teenagers: every day at 7Hills starts with at least 1 hour of sport – including basketball in the arena, lacrosse, football, swimming, tennis and cricket.

Not only does 7Hills have access to the best sporting facilities of any school in Uganda, it also has an extensive library, a fully equipped Science lab, a unique Information Technology Centre, a Skills Workshop and outdoor dining all set in a beautiful green setting in Kololo.

Our guiding curriculum is the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC). The latest research has shown consistently that the maturing adolescent brain needs very specific support and that students’ personal development cannot be neglected. The IMYC is designed around these concepts and it supports the academic and personal needs of the learner at this crucial stage in the students’ lives.

The IMYC, like its primary equivalent (the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) that is taught at most international schools in Kampala), is a rigorous academic curriculum that is taught through thematic units. These units challenge students to take the lead in their learning and be more independent. They provide an exciting and enriching learning experience that helps students to connect their learning across all subjects, preparing them for life and a lifelong learning journey.
7Hills teachers, who have extensive experience working with children in various communities both in Uganda and internationally, use dynamic and practical learning techniques that encourage young minds to express themselves, think critically, solve problems and enjoy what they are learning. This is done through 10 main subjects, which are: English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Information Technology, Art, Music, Drama, Physical Education and a mandatory language of choice.

As a non-profit organisation, 7Hills boasts the most competitive fees for International Secondary Education in Kampala. As a parent-founded school, we appreciate the complexities of tuition payment, particularly when more than one child is involved. 7Hills takes each child and their family into consideration when they apply. For self funding families, bursaries of up to 30% are available.

7Hills is currently enrolling for years 7 & 8 (students aged 11 – 13 years) for August 2017 admissions. For more information, visit our website at www.7hillskampala.com. Visits to the school can be arranged at info@7hillskampala.com or on +256 752 744 557.
