The secondary section represents the last five years of a child’s schooling at Universal.
While the primary sections establishes a solid platform of enquiry and creates a thirst for knowledge, the secondary section shifts the emphasis of enquiry. During these five years, understanding the prescribed academic concepts is of prime importance. Students continue to question and learn through active experience but in the secondary section, great focus and attention is paid to the facts and principles underlying each subject.
Co-curricular and extra-curricular participation is mandatory while special age appropriate programmes also form part of the educational milieu.
Co-curricular exposures and experiences include all of those mentioned in the primary section. However, children are allowed to select the activity that interests them the most so that they can derive the best benefit of these advanced learning.
Self expression and leadership are facilitated through platforms like Debates, Elocution competitions, Mock parliament sessions and the Student council.
Specific knowledge content is passed on to the students in the shape of programmes covering age appropriate sex education, stress and examinations, future career path alternatives and so on.
Individual interests find their place in our scheme of education by way of diverse clubs and groups. We will have clubs for writing, flower arrangement, cookery, nature and photography, arts, music, drama, dance and sports.
