About Cambridge Board

Cambridge Board develops skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving. It is the perfect springboard to advanced study. The syllabuses are international in outlook, but retain a local relevance. The curriculum develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:

  • Subject content.
  • Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as unfamiliar situations.
  • Intellectual enquiry.
  • Flexibility and responsiveness to change.
  • Working and communicating in English.
  • Influencing outcomes.
  • Cultural awareness.

A Cambridge IGCSE is the formal recognition of a learner's achievement at the end of a particular subject course covered during grade 8, 9 and 10.

Each qualification is made up of a number of assessments (called components), the majority of which take place at the end of the course. The methods of assessment include written papers, orals, coursework and practicals.

Learners have an access to library, computers, laptops, i-pads and the internet in the classroom. This can enhance the teaching programme by providing opportunities for differentiated learning approaches that target the individual learning needs of each student.
