The Cambridge Lower Secondary programme is a popular lower secondary education programme for 13 to 15 year old. The programme lays a strong foundation for international students and aims to develop learners’ skills and understanding in English, Mathematics, Science, Cambridge Lower Secondary Global Perspectives, Aesthetics, Physical Education and Chinese (optional subject). This comprehensive curriculum provides a natural progression for students from primary education and thoroughly prepares them for the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) curriculum and for progression to other educational systems.
Touchstone International Institute has specially designed an effective Cambridge Lower Secondary with Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint programme to prepare international students for the Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint examination administered by Cambridge Assessment International Education. The subjects taught follow the Cambridge Assessment International Education Lower Secondary syllabuses closely.
Students can choose to sit for an optional Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint Test set by Cambridge Assessment International Education and marked by Cambridge Assessment International Education Examiners, according to Cambridge Assessment International Education Specifications. Upon successful completion, students can proceed to embark on the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) programme.
