How does a Cambridge programme work?

The Cambridge programme takes students on a journey through Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Secondary 1, Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A Level. Students can join at any stage.

The curriculum in each stage has aims and objectives that support students to become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. These are the attributes of Cambridge learners.
