Cambridge Primary
(Classes III - V)

A broad and balanced curriculum:

  • 10 subjects (including English, Mathematics and Science)
  • Classroom and external assessments

Cambridge Primary starts learners on an exciting educational journey. It develops young learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged and includes assessment that proves and improves learning.

Cambridge Primary develops skills in six subjects including English, Mathematics and Science. It is designed to help schools deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that suits their context, culture and ethos.

The curriculum sets clear learning objectives and focuses on developing knowledge and skills in all subjects, providing excellent foundations for the next stage of education. The curriculum is flexible, so schools can offer any combination of the subjects available.

Cambridge Primary helps prepare children for Lower Secondary Checkpoint and IGCSEs/International GCSEs. It gives them a love of learning that will stay with them through school, university and beyond.

Secondary
(Classes VI - VIII)


A foundation for progression

Cambridge Lower Secondary provides excellent preparation for Cambridge Upper Secondary and other educational programmes. Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint tests can be used to monitor learners’ readiness for the next stage of education.

International curriculum

Appropriate and relevant internationally, Cambridge Lower Secondary has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top-quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning in local and international schools.


Benefits for your child

Cambridge Lower Secondary starts learners on an educational journey for their first years of secondary education, increasing their knowledge and skills at each stage. It provides a natural progression for children from primary education and prepares them for post-14 education programmes that lead to formal qualifications.

A number of progress checks are built into the Cambridge Lower Secondary programme, which enable teachers to monitor your child's development. The emphasis of tests is on showing where your child is on their own learning journey, rather than simply getting right or wrong answers.

Cambridge Checkpoint tests can be taken in the final year of Cambridge Lower Secondary. These tests are available in English, English as a Second Language, Mathematics, and Science and are marked in Cambridge, England.

On completion of Cambridge Checkpoint, your child will receive a statement of achievement and detailed feedback on their strengths and weaknesses. This helps your school to advise on different progression routes after age 14 and choose the one that will be most suitable for your child.


Assessments

Cambridge IGCSE assessment takes place at the end of the course and can include written, oral, coursework and practical assessment. This broadens opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning. In many subjects there is a choice between core and extended curricula, making Cambridge IGCSE suitable for a wide range of abilities.

Grades are benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades, A* to G, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement for each grade.

Leveraging Digital Learning

Even though our physical schools were closed much of the year during the pandemic, learning continued energetically. Our school community became confident and effective at leveraging digital platforms such as Khan Academy, Google Classroom, Kahoot, Mentimeter, Geogebra and Interactive Flat-Panel Displays, etc. to ensure that learning continues.

As education technology becomes increasingly important, our teachers are at the forefront of the implementation of a digital classroom. Classes now make regular use of virtual instruments that help to develop deep understanding and higher order critical thinking skills.

Entrepreneurship is not only a skill but a series of exposures and experiences that augment business acumen. The club has become a hub of ideas exchange. Students planned the sale of a solar power-based lamp for vegetable vendors and presented the idea to concerned authorities. They went through an entrepreneurship workshop to further develop their skills. The culmination of the dynamic interflow of ideas that the club provided was in the form of a student led inter-school event entitled ‘Metamorphosis’. The core members and volunteers faced a diverse set of tasks in organising events and facilitating a symposium.

The Debate Club is one of the most sought- after clubs by students who wish to improve their communication skills. Students learn the skills of debating like research, developing arguments, avoiding logical fallacies and speaking confidently. The topic is decided upon by generating ideas from the students and deliberating on their relevance and pertinence. Two teams, one for and one against each topic, are chosen from among the students who volunteer to speak. Time limits and rubrics are shared with the students. After the debate and counter- arguments from teams, the other students of the club get time for rebuttal. The results are decided by voting from the members. Participant teams are provided valuable feedback, appreciating the positive points and pointing out where they could improve.

The Book Club encourages students to not only read, but also develop a perspective. Weekly goals are set, and then discussions conducted to ensure that the students actually interacted with the material. Cambridge's Book Club dives into questions that are generally considered too trivial to be acknowledged. One such question was 'Who was your favourite character, and why?', helping students understand implicit information and subtle cues. The discussion also yielded some astounding questions, (such as 'Did Jane Austen actually endorse the thought that wealth directly leads to happiness?'

Cambridge's Book Club facilitates discussion rather than merely individual/private reading. Children dive into questions that develop intelligence, curiosity, analytical skills, wide knowledge and vocabulary, and they gain experiences vicariously, all of which add to maturity and a rounded perspective.
