What is the Cambridge Lower Secondary Program?
Cambridge Lower Secondary is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. Schools can shape the programme around how they want their students to learn, developing young learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. The programme provides a natural progression for children from lower secondary education and prepares them for post-14 education programmes that lead to formal qualifications.
By offering Cambridge Lower Secondary, we provide a broad and balanced education for learners, helping them to thrive throughout their schooling, work and life.
Cambridge encourages active learning, which involves learners being engaged in their Learning rather than passively listening and copying information. Learners should take part in a variety of activities that encourage them to think about the knowledge or skill they are learning rather than on the task itself.
Cambridge Teacher and Learner attributes
As well as developing learners’ knowledge and understanding of different subjects, Cambridge International encourages the development of key learner attributes. These Cambridge learner attributes underpin the Cambridge approach and apply to teachers too. These are:
- Reflective as learners, developing their ability to learn.
- Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges.
- Confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others.
- Engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference.
- Responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others.
