Cambridge International Programmes

  • For the core subject areas of Language Arts, Mathematics and Science we follow the internationally recognized Cambridge International Primary (CIPP) and Lower Secondary (CILSP) Programmes. These programmes are comprised of several elements, the core of which is the Cambridge Primary Curriculum Framework. This framework provides the learning goals for each stage.
  • Foundation for Secondary Education
  • The CIPP establishes a foundation for secondary education by aiding identification of a student’s strengths and weaknesses and being used to support learning and development. The Primary Programme progresses students seamlessly into middle years curricula, such as Cambridge Checkpoint and IGCSE.
  • External Benchmark
  • The CIPP also provides teachers with an external benchmark to inform their teaching and easily measure students’ progress over time. It also allows detailed, structured reporting to parents.
  • International Curriculum
  • Appropriate and relevant internationally, the CIPP has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top–quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning. The structure of the Programme encourages our teachers to use their own materials, bringing in local, national and international examples.
  • Flexible Structure
  • The CIPP incorporates a high degree of flexibility as it includes a range of teaching methods and curricula. Our teachers have the liberty to make adaptations whenever necessary, helping them to cater for individual needs.
