Cambridge Secondary

Cambridge Lower Secondary

Grades CP1 to CP3

While the primary years establish a solid platform of enquiry and create a thirst for knowledge, the middle years shift the emphasis of enquiry. During these 3 years, understanding the prescribed academic concepts is of prime importance. Students continue to question and learn through active experience but in the middle years, great focus and attention are paid to the facts and principles underlying each subject. Extensive participation in co-curricular activities is mandatory while special age-appropriate programmes also form part of the educational milieu.

Our classrooms are dynamic spaces and students work in groups, pairs and individually. They are encouraged to show their learning in many different ways e.g. presentations, demonstrations, quizzes, peer assessment as well as tests.

The Cambridge Lower Secondary provides excellent preparation for the next stage of education – the IGCSE.
