The Cambridge curriculum

We follow the Cambridge Assessment International Education which takes learners on an exciting educational journey from a young age. This international curriculum provides an advanced level of teaching with rigorous assessments and a unique approach to providing knowledge and education of realities, lifestyles, socio-economic situations (and more) of countries across the world. This curriculum grants learners access to all UK universities and over 600 universities in the USA (including IV League).

Learners write several international benchmark tests, such as the IGCSE, while their final examination is the A Level exam.


The Cambridge pathway

This curriculum has four stages that lead seamlessly from primary to secondary and pre-university years. Each stage builds on the learners’ development from the previous one and offers a wide range of subjects with an emphasis on English, Mathematics and Science:

  • Cambridge Primary (5 to 11 years old)
  • Cambridge Lower Secondary (11 to 14 years old)
  • Cambridge Upper Secondary or the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) – IGCSE Core or IGCSE Extended (14 to 16 years old)
  • Cambridge Advanced AS and A levels (16 to 19 years old)
