The main goal of the school is to concentrate on what they have learnt. The Primrose International School in Chennai is very clear about the way of teaching, The student should be strong in the concept and should not mug-up. The teacher keep on monitoring each and every child and take complete care of the students.


As per the ICSE recommendations, we would have to attain minimum instructional hours of 1200 hr for classes XI to XII


Regulation of Homework: Every class has a homework timetable that relates to the learning pathway that they are on. Homework is allotted keeping in mind the health and well-being of pupils, and judicious control is exercised by the class teachers, which is reviewed by the Head of the School. The co-operation of parents is essential for the holistic development of the child. The amount of written work to be done at home will be controlled and there will be a proper division of written and reading homework.

Type of Homework : Homework will differ from subject to subject, but reasonable homework would include:

  • Work designed to give children practice in a particular process or operation.
  • The application of principles that are explained in the class.
  • Reading (study) with a view to acquiring principles, essential facts or formulae or illustrative examples.
  • Collecting information relating to specified topics or for debates.

Holiday Homework: At the High School stage, pupils are required to maintain diaries, take up one or two projects or work on a hobby, suitable to their tastes and abilities and their economic support available from the parents.

Requesting Parents :It forms an important part of a student’s education since it reinforces the work covered in the classroom. Home assignments aim to develop the responsibility, time management, self-reliance, autonomy and perseverance in the child. It is important for parents to realize that while it is their role to assist their children in establishing a regular time for the purpose of completing home assignments, too much parental participation or involvement in projects/homework, defeats the purpose for which they are assigned.


In class XI/XII, the conditions for promotions will be the same as those for passing the I.S.C Examination.


Classes XI (ICSE) – Students of Classes XI (ISCE) will have two terms. They will have four Formative Assessments each term.

Pre-Board Exams for Classes XII (ICSE): Students of Classes XII (ISCE) will have two term exams and three Pre-board exams.
At the end of each term, the teachers will give notes about the students to the parents, not fully based on written test-papers, but also mainly on their behavior, concentration, regularity, and promptness to understand and their openness of intelligence. Teachers will take it as a discipline to rely more on inner contact, keen observation, and impartial outlook. For the students, it will be the necessity of understanding truly what they learn and not to repeat like a parrot what they have not fully understood. Thus, true progress will have been made in the teaching.
