PRIMARY DEPARTMENT – YEAR 1 TO 6

The Primary Department uses the Cambridge Primary Programme under Cambridge International Assessment Examinations.

What is Cambridge Primary?

Cambridge Primary is an education programme for learners aged 5 to 11 years. Cambridge Primary develops learners’ skills and understanding through the primary years in English as a first and second language, mathematics and science.

Cambridge Primary is a great place to start your child’s learning journey. It enables learners to develop their knowledge and skills in core subjects, and prepares them for progression to Cambridge Lower Secondary, and other educational systems. Teachers are able to monitor your child’s development through a number of progress checks built into the Cambridge Primary programme. Short progression tests are a valuable way for teachers to understand your child’s strengths and identify areas where more help is needed. The focus of these tests is showing where your child is on their learning journey, rather than getting right or wrong answers.

Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests are marked by Cambridge International, and can be taken in the final year of Cambridge Primary. On completion of Cambridge Primary Checkpoint, your child will receive a statement of achievement and you will receive detailed feedback about your child’s performance.
