When students enter year 10 they start on their Cambridge IGCSE journey. The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum offers a variety of routes for learners with a wide range of abilities, including those whose first language is not English.
Cambridge IGCSE offers a flexible and stimulating curriculum, supported with excellent resources and training. For learners, Cambridge IGCSE helps improve performance by developing skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving. It is the perfect springboard to advanced study.
Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:
Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as unfamiliar situations
Flexibility and responsiveness to change
Working and communicating in English
The syllabuses are international in outlook, but retain a local relevance. They have been created specifically for an international student body and avoid cultural bias.
All IGCSE Courses last for 2 years and end with external examinations which will be taken at the end of Year 11.
