The Cambridge International Curriculum helps students to be successful in primary and secondary education.
It is a flexible framework and the qualifications are internationally recognised. It is supported by the best educational and assessment practice:
- Quality and clarity delivered through the curriculum
- Guaranteed assessment standards
- Training and professional development
- International outlook and commitment
- A partnership approach between Cambridge and the school
The Cambridge International Primary Programme gives schools a framework to develop numeracy, literacy and science skills in young children aged 5 – 11 years. It helps teachers to assess children’s learning as they progress and assistance in curriculum development.
The Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme follows the same pattern. It builds on the primary stage and provides a vehicle for success for students approximately 11 – 14 years. It develops children’s knowledge and skills in Mathematics, English and Science, as well as studying History, Chinese, Geography, ICT, Art, Physical Education, Music, and Life Skills.
Cambridge checkpoint tests during the Lower Secondary Programme provide detailed feedback on students’ strengths and weaknesses before they move into the 14 – 16 year old period of external examinations, including IGCSE.
In the secondary school additional subjects are included on the timetable as students move upwards from the lower secondary school to when students are approximately 14 to 17 years of age, when they may sit for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in the subjects listed:
- English as a second language
- Chinese as a foreign language
- Combined Science (chemistry, biology, physics)
- Environmental Management (geography, some history, social studies and the humanities)
- Business Studies.
Therefore, our current program covers key languages, science subjects, as well as technical and job and professionally related subjects highly relevant to the needs of Lao people.
