Our High School follows the Cambridge Assessment International Education Curriculum. While the Montessori philosophy is carried through this age group, the children now follow the Cambridge model for their education.

CURRICULUM:

The Cambridge curriculum offers student 3 possible exits from High School. Children can exit with IGCSE, AS levels or A Levels depending on their career path, passion and abilities.

In Middle school (12 – 15 years old) children set the foundation for their subject choices which will be carried through to High School (15 – 18 years old).

Starting from a foundation of core subjects, children are exposed to cross-curricular perspectives. Children are encouraged to engage with a variety of subjects and make connections between them. Cambridge IGCSE offers a flexible and stimulating curriculum.

Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:

  • Subject content
  • Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as unfamiliar situations
  • Intellectual enquiry
  • Flexibility and responsiveness to change
  • Working and communicating in English
  • Influencing outcomes
  • Cultural awareness.

Cambridge Advanced builds on the foundations of Cambridge IGCSE. Students take internationally recognised Cambridge International AS & A Level. The syllabuses develop a deep understanding of subjects and critical independent thinking skills. Children have an increased chance of university entrance by exiting their High School with Cambridge International AS Levels or A Levels.

ASSESMENT OPTIONS

After having selected their subjects, students can choose from a range of assessment options to gain Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications:

  1. Take the Cambridge International AS Level only. The syllabus content is half a Cambridge International A Level.
  2. Take a ‘staged’ assessment route – take the Cambridge International AS Level in one examination series and complete the final Cambridge International A Level at subsequent series.
  3. Take all papers of the Cambridge International A Level course in the same examination session, usually at the end of the course.

VACATION CLUB

We invite our little learners to join us during the holidays for fun-filled days of Vacation Club. This allows parents who are not able to take time off to leave their child with us in safe, capable hands where they will be stimulated and kept entertained during the day.

INTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Intra-curricular activities are the activities that form part of your standard school fees and are offered as part of the curriculum at no additional cost. These activities are held within school hours. Should there be matches or concerts that require your child’s attendance we will notify you in good time of the details so you can make arrangements for their participation.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

MUSIC

2nd LANGUAGE

A 60-minute lesson is offered once a week. On the day of your child’s PE lesson they should bring a white t-shirt, blue shorts and trainers to change into. Our PE program looks at the development of core muscles, the knowledge of different sports as well as the muscles and skills required for each sport.

The Primary School children have a weekly music lesson. This lesson includes the introduction and development of musical theory.
They learn the recorder as well as how to read music.

Afrikaans is the second language that is taught as part of the curriculum. Zulu is an optional second language that is available for the children. Lessons are held once a week.
