A Cambridge International School
The International Department has been a registered Cambridge International School since 2001.
We follow Cambridge curriculum in English, Math and Science from Stage 1 to Stage 9. In 2018 we are introducing Global Perspectives in Stages 1 to 6.
In Stages 10 and 11 we offer 9 IGCSE subjects. You can find out more about Cambridge International by visiting their website at http://www.cambridgeinternational.org

Cambridge Progression Tests and Internal Exams
We use Cambridge Progression tests in English, Math and Science to check students’ progress. We also have internal tests prior to Christmas and in June for other subjects for students in years 7 to 11.

The Progression tests allow parents to monitor student progress when transferring from one school to another or changing school systems. We believe these tests can help both teachers, parents and students understand better the challenges the students face in their learning programmes.
Reporting to Parents
There are four formal occasions when student progress is reported to parents:
Two written reports at the end of first and second semesters, December and June.
Two oral reports usually half way through each semester, ie October and March. Students are invited to participate in these conferences as well.
