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.

most of their strengths and interests.

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?

what a student needs to learn.

are there to recognise, reward and encourage learning.

through Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Secondary 1,
Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A
