British-based Learning with an International Perspective

Creativity Activity Service (CAS)

CAS is a compulsory component for all A Level and IB students. Providing opportunities for independently managed, experiential learning beyond the curriculum, CAS is valued highly. Students are required to plan, record, and reflect upon each CAS activity. Enjoyable and challenging, CAS is also intended to offer a balance to academic study.

• Creativity – arts and other experiences that involve creative thinking
• Activity – physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle
• Service – an unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit

CAS is also designed to foster specific skills and outcomes that complement the Tanglin Learner Profile. Student reflections, during and after CAS activities, are tailored to the outcomes listed below:

• Increasing an awareness of strengths and areas for growth
• Undertaking new challenges
• Planning and initiating activities
• Working collaboratively with others
• Showing perseverance and commitment in activities
• Engaging with issues of global importance
• Considering the ethical implications of their actions
• Developing new skills
