The Cambridge Curriculum
We follow the Cambridge International Curriculum from the beginning of Primary Section all the way through to the end of Secondary. This is a highly respected and globally recognized curriculum, delivered in English and based on the UK education framework. Within the Cambridge system, students take two sets of external examination: IGCSE (International General Certificate of Education) at the end of Stage 10. Typically students take exams in 5 to 7 different subjects at this stage. International A (Advanced) Levels at the end of Stage 12. Most students study for 3 A Level subjects related to their future Higher Education and career aspirations. Cambridge A Levels are the “passport” for entry into Higher Education or employment. Cambridge International A Levels are highly respected and recognised by Universities and employers across the world (including here in Rwanda; the Rwanda Education Board consider Cambridge A levels equivalent to the National qualifications in terms of University admission). The Cambridge curriculum aims to provide students with excellent subject knowledge, but also develop real understanding and independent thinking. The aim is to produce learners who are equipped with skills to enable them to success at school, in Higher Education and in work. Cambridge programmes are designed to inspire and challenge, and to develop five key attributes in students: confidence, responsibility, reflection, innovation and engagement. Delivering these programmes requires skilled teachers who place a strong emphasis on active learning methods in the classroom. Resources for further information: Cambridge International website.
