Cambridge - CLSP and IGCSE

Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme (CLSP)

Cambridge Lower Secondary program is for Grades 6 and 7, specially crafted for 11- to 14-year old students by the prestigious Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE). It is designed to provide a strong foundation for students wanting to pursue the IGCSE curriculum in Grades 8 to 10.  The curriculum encourages learners to become confident in working with information and ideas and provides a robust foundation in English, Maths, and Science.

Ours is a framework that provides students with superior education that imparts more than textbook learning. Our Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme (CLSP) for Grades 6 and 7 is one such feather in our cap.

Subjects

We offer English as first language, Mathematics, Science and Cambridge Global Perspectives.

CLS learners develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any environment and to promote cross-cultural understanding. For Maths, our  framework explores six content areas: number, algebra, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. Science covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics.

The curriculum is presented in five content areas or ‘strands’. These are further divided into ‘substrands’:

Cambridge IGCSE

Our two-year IGCSE education is an internationally recognised programme which gives a jump start to international curricula.

Critical thinking, enquiry-based learning and problem solving are the most significant learning outcomes of the Cambridge IGCSE programme. It is a good balance between retaining local relevance and embracing the international outlook, and subsequently laying the groundwork for lifelong learning.

Students follow a broad and balanced curriculum with subjects that are diverse and relevant enough to encourage learners to have a solid foundation in English, Maths and Science. It also encourages learners to  become confident in working with information and ideas.

Thanks to the flexible Cambridge IGCSE framework, students have the freedom to select subjects according to their individual interests and capabilities. Systematic, one-to-one curriculum delivery and continuous evaluation ensures that student needs are met through the identification of each learner’s strengths and weakness. This knowledge is used to further support learning and development while preparing learners for a smooth transition to higher education and beyond.

Outcomes

For students of Cambridge IGCSE, this is the first step towards choosing International Curricula as their mode of higher study, such as the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. These students have an exemplary track record in examinations, as the programme develops critical skills, including creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving.

In doing so, the programme lays the vital groundwork for subsequent lifelong learning. Progress along the way is facilitated by annual goal setting exercises designed to help students set goals and achieve them.

All this leads to shaping students into confident, responsible, reflective, innovative, and engaged individuals while facilitating the path towards further studies and career enhancement.
