Cambridge Lower Secondary is for learners aged 11 to 14 years. It helps prepare students for the next step of their education, providing a clear path as they progress through the Cambridge Pathway in an age-appropriate way.
By offering Cambridge Lower Secondary, we provide a broad and balanced education for the students, helping them to thrive throughout their schooling, work and life. With over ten subjects to choose from, including English, mathematics and science, they will find plenty of opportunities to develop creativity, expression and wellbeing in a variety of ways.
We shape the curriculum around how we want the students to learn. The curriculum is flexible, so we offer some combination of the subjects available and adapt the content to suit students' context, culture and ethos.
Accurately measuring a student’s potential and progress can transform learning and help us make informed decisions about individual students, their educational needs and where to focus teachers’ teaching efforts.
We use the Cambridge Lower Secondary testing structure to assess student performance and report progress to students and parents.
● Understand students’ potential and what they are learning.
● Benchmark performance against students of a similar age.
● Plan our interventions to help students improve on areas of weakness and reach their potential in strength areas.
● Use at the beginning or the end of the academic year.
The test feedback measures a student performance in relation to:
● the Curriculum framework
● their teaching group
● a whole school cohort
● previous years'students.
