Secondary (ages 12 – 15 years)

INTRODUCTION

The school delivers an international curriculum, the contents of which assimilate the best of national and international curriculum that is proven and time-tested. In this way, students will get the best of both worlds in the sense that they will receive internationally recognised awards without compromising on Malaysian content. The curriculum will constitute the Cambridge International Secondary Programme and the UK National Curriculum. Students who complete their secondary education will progress to Year 10 & Year 11 and ultimately take the Cambridge IGCSE examinations.

All Malaysian students must take the compulsory Malaysian subjects. Medium of instruction is English, except for the second language subject.


CURRICULUM

Cambridge Secondary provides a seamless progression from Cambridge Primary – or can be used as a standalone curriculum – to develop learners’ skills and confidence in English, Mathematics and Science. It offers a curriculum framework for educational success for learners, typically 12 years to 15 years old, with an optional testing structure.

Cambridge Secondary has been developed to link seamlessly with Cambridge Primary and provides standardised tests to allow careful monitoring of progress from primary to lower secondary phases. It also provides excellent preparation for learners embarking on Cambridge Upper Secondary; the Cambridge IGCSE examination.

At the end of the programme, the optional Cambridge Checkpoint assessments are available to provide detailed feedback on learners’ strengths and weaknesses.
