General Information

Students develop skills and understanding in 10 subjects including English, mathematics and science. Progression tests help teachers check their progress.

We want each student to fulfil their potential and make the most of their strengths and interests. The Cambridge Primary programme is designed – with the help of expert educators in schools and universities – to challenge students, and get them excited about what they’re learning.

Cambridge Primary provides a broad and balanced education for our learners, helping them to thrive throughout their schooling, with plenty of opportunities to develop creativity, expression and wellbeing.

Students develop skills and understanding in 10 subjects including English, mathematics and science. Progression tests help teachers check their progress.

The Cambridge programmes are designed to help students learn.

Students have to demonstrate understanding and the core knowledge of a subject, as well as think critically. Exams are there to recognise, reward and encourage learning.

Cambridge Pathway programmes are flexible, so teachers can use examples that are relevant to students’ local context and culture. Students learn in English, and our assessment is accessible to speakers of English as a second or foreign language.

 

Students build a broad learning programme from a range of over 70 subjects. In each subject, they work towards Cambridge IGCSE, the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds.

Cambridge learners build more than just a deep understanding of their subject. Being a student of Cambridge Pathway means developing the higher order thinking skills to apply what they’ve learned. Solving problems creatively. Thinking for themselves. Doing their own research and communicating it. Working with other people on a project they’ve designed together.

Students develop the deep understanding and thinking skills they need for university. They work towards Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications – giving them the choice to specialise, or study from a diverse range of subjects.

How does the Cambridge Pathway help students applying for university?

Success in Cambridge qualifications often give students admission to the world’s best universities – in the US, Australia, Canada, Germany and beyond. Cambridge qualifications are accepted and valued by universities around the world, including MIT, Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge.

They are recognised as qualifications that prepare and equip students with the skills they need to succeed both at university and beyond.
