Cambridge Primary

The Cambridge Primary programme gives schools a framework to develop English, Mathematics, Science, Global Perspectives, skills, knowledge, and understanding in young children. One of the core objectives of our academic programmes is to identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses which can then be used to support learning and development. Cambridge Primary progresses students seamlessly into middle years curricula, such as Cambridge Lower Secondary and IGCSE.

Cambridge Primary provides guidance for classroom learning and curriculum development. It enables teachers to assess children’s learning as they progress with two optional assessments: Cambridge Primary Progression Tests and Cambridge Primary Checkpoint. Students are assessed in each stage (Stage II to V) by the Cambridge Progression Tests and at the end of stage VI by the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint. The test is available in four core subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, and Global Perspectives. Cambridge Primary Checkpoint is taken by the students in April. This is an external examination assessed by the Cambridge Assessment International Education. All students are awarded a Cambridge Certificate of Achievement at the end of primary schooling.
