What is Cambridge Primary Programme (Key Stage 1 & 2)

Cambridge curriculum is one of the most reputable academic programmes in the world, which is taught in more than 9000 schools across 160 countries. 

The Cambridge  Key Stage 1 & 2 comprises lower primary and upper primary sections which is designed to equip students with skills and resources to achieve meritorious education. It provides a great start for students to progress into secondary school - including Cambridge IGCSE.

Cambridge Primary Key Stage 1 (5 -7 years old) 

Key Stage 1 is typically designed for students who fall in the age group of 5 to 7 years, where they are guided by well-trained teachers to help build a strong foundation in their crucial schooling years.

Our two-year primary programme focuses on developing languages, teaching mathematical skills and sowing the seeds of scientific inquiry into young minds. It helps build a solid basis for academic and extracurricular activities which are part of our 9GEMS holistic framework.

Cambridge Primary Key Stage 2 (8-11 years old) 

Key Stage 2 or Upper Primary is a four-year programme during which teachers introduce students to advanced levels of skills in all subject areas.  
Assessments are carried out by teachers and peers to check the progress of the students through exams and integrated progress checkers. These tests - called Cambridge Primary Progression Tests - are marked by the teacher and enable them to track the progression students.

Students completing Year 6 of Key Stage 2 are also assessed via the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint examinations, following which they are rewarded with a certification of achievement.

Exceptional Academic Results

To offer real and lasting value to our students, we follow a flexible, linear assessment structure to offer a fair and valid evaluation of the students’ progress across the Cambridge Key Stages 1 and 2 programmes. Regular assessments allow us to identify the abilities and gaps in every student, so we can support them in areas they are lacking in.

The right teacher-student ratio can be a remarkable contribution to the academic success of many students. As a low ratio can significantly improve student engagement, we ensure to accept a limited number of students in each class so that they can enjoy balanced growth under the teacher’s mindful supervision.
