Cambridge International Primary Programme
Cambridge International Primary Programme (CIPP) is a curriculum framework which focuses on the development of English, Mathematics, and Science skills, knowledge and understanding in younger learners, between ages of 5 to 11 years old.

CIPP develops essential skills in literacy, numeracy and scientific enquiry in students in the primary phase of their education, while covering a good knowledge base reflecting a global perspective. The programme is an excellent preparation for the next phase in a student’s education, providing a foundation for secondary education like International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).

The core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science), which are delivered in accordance with the syllabi supplied by Cambridge provide students with a firm transferable skill set that will prepare them for further education.

This programme meets all requirements of the Lao Ministry of Education (MOE).
