Our lower secondary curriculum is a continuation of the primary curriculum, while setting students up for IGCSE. Core Cambridge subjects continue along with our additional subjects in music, art, physical education and languages (French and Kinyarwanda).
Cambridge Lower Secondary English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop the skills to respond to a range of information, media and texts with understanding and enjoyment. This curriculum is designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding.
The curriculum framework explores six content areas: number, algebra, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. The first five content areas are all underpinned by problem solving, which provides a structure for the application of mathematical skills. Mental strategies are also an important part of the number content. The curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships, so that learners apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.
Cambridge ICT Starters is a series of modules, which assess candidates on their ability to use a range of computer software to communicate, handle information, model and program solutions. Learners will develop key ICT skills in a range of applications including computer programming, word processing, digital graphics, databases, spreadsheets, email, presentations, video/animation, the internet and web authoring. They will also consider wider issues such as eSafety and the adaption of their work to suit their audience.
Cambridge Lower Secondary Global Perspectives develops the skills of research, analysis, evaluation, reflection, collaboration and communication in Learners.
Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide and is an international passport to progression and success. To ensure our students are best prepared for their upcoming education, they are required to continue the core courses of English, mathematics and science and then have the option of studying a variety of courses, which will expand as the school grows.
Cambridge IGCSE Combined Sciences gives learners the opportunity to study Biology, Chemistry and Physics, each covered in separate syllabus sections. Learners gain an understanding of the basic principles of each subject through a mix of theoretical and practical studies, while also developing an understanding of the scientific skills essential for further study.
