In year 7, we introduce students to the theory and concepts of accounting and the ways in which accounting is used in a variety of modern economic and business contexts.
Students focus on the skills of recording, reporting, presenting and interpreting financial information; these skills form an ideal foundation for further study, and for a future career within the profession.
Our curriculum is structured so that students attain both practical skills and theoretical knowledge. Our programmes balance a thorough knowledge and understanding of the subject and help to develop the skills students need for their next step in education.
The aims of the subject are to enable students to develop:
- Knowledge and understanding of the principles and purposes of accounting for individuals, businesses, non-trading organisations and society as a whole
- An understanding of accounting concepts, principles, policies, techniques, procedures and terminology
- Improved skills of numeracy, literacy, communication, enquiry, presentation and interpretation
- Improved accuracy, orderliness and the ability to think logically
- An excellent foundation for advanced study.
WAEC and IGCSE
Our syllabus is structured to prepare our students for both the West African Senior Secondary Examinations and the International General Certificate Secondary Examinations in Accounting.
Utilizing creative solutions, we complete all topics of syllabus for both WAEC and IGCSE exams before the end of the 11th year(SS2) with our students writing the IGCSE exams May/June of that year.
To give an idea of the exam results which our students at The Concord school achieve at WAEC and IGCSE, we have provided the results in English Language over the most recent year, 2019. WAEC A1-B3:100% IGCSE A*-B:100%, A*-C: 100%
