Educational achievement is of great importance to our school
Students’ progress is monitored internally by the teachers and externally through public examinations set by Cambridge International Examinations. It is our aim to provide a seamless education for children from the age of two until they enter university at the age of eighteen. The timetable also includes art, music, dance, drama, sports and extra curricular activities.
The school is a member of the Cambridge International Primary Programme and the Cambridge Secondary Programme. In Year Ten and Year Eleven students are prepared and entered for the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE); IGCSE, which are widely recognised around the world by employers and higher education institutions. In Year Twelve and Year Thirteen students can continue their university preparation by studying towards and entering for the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE); AS and A levels, which can be used to access leading universities worldwide.
