How do students benefit from Cambridge Programmes?
  • ​Cambridge programmes and qualifications prepare students for life – helping them to develop an informed curiosity and lasting passion for learning.
  • Cambridge helps students develop thinking and learning skills – so they become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. Ready to tackle the demands of tomorrow’s world, capable of shaping a better world for the future.
What do our students study?
  • So we offer a wide range of subjects and let every student choose the subjects they love and the subjects they’re best at.
  • We want each student to fulfil their potential and make the most of their strengths and interests. ​
  • We design programmes – with the help of expert educators in schools and universities – to challenge students, and get them excited about what they’re learning. They learn about the key concepts of each subject in depth, so they understand them inside and out.
  • Our 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.​
How does the Cambridge Programme work?
  •  We start by identifying what a student needs to 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.
  • The Cambridge programme takes students on a journey through Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Secondary 1, Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A Level. Students can join at any stage.
  • The curriculum in each stage has aims and objectives that support students to become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. These are the attributes of Cambridge learners.​​
Cambridge Students;
  • Build more than just a deep understanding of their subject.
  • Develop the higher order thinking skills to apply what they’ve learned. 
  • Solve problems creatively. Thinking for themselves. Doing their own research and communicating it. Working with other people on a project they’ve designed together.
  • Earn qualifications that are accepted and valued by universities around the world, including MIT, Harvard and Cambridge.
