Cambridge Secondary 1 is a flexible curriculum with integrated assessment from Cambridge International Examinations. It provides a seamless progression from Cambridge
Primary – or can be used as a standalone curriculum – to develop learners’ skills and confidence in English, Mathematics and Science. It offers a curriculum framework
for educational success for learners (typically 11–14 years old), with an optional testing structure.
Cambridge Checkpoint tests are for use at the end of Cambridge Secondary 1. They are marked by Cambridge International Examinations, and provide schools with an external international benchmark for student performance. Cambridge Checkpoint tests enable feedback to be provided on a learner’s strengths and weaknesses in key curriculum areas. Feedback of this kind is an invaluable source of information. Schools and colleges will be able to make strategic decisions, drawing upon a pool of information and specialist reporting tools built into Cambridge Checkpoint. Learners taking the test receive a Statement of Achievement which gives an indication of their academic progress during this education stage.
Cambridge Secondary 1 develops skills and understanding in English, Mathematics and Science for the first three years of secondary education. It combines a world-class curriculum, high-quality support for teachers and integrated assessment.
