The curriculum encourages learners to become confident in working with information and ideas and provides a robust foundation in English, Maths, and Science.

Why choose Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme?

Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme is the first step for primary students who want to choose International Curricula as their mode of study. The programme comes under the aegis of CAIE which is a syllabus-driven study that helps improve learners’ skills in creative thinking, application of knowledge and problem-solving.

By opting for CLSP, students will be well-equipped to make an easy transition into IGCSE curriculum. This will also help students build a strong foundation in their area of interest right from the start, which will go a long way in guiding them to opt for the right pathway for future and achieve their career goals.

IGCSE Experts

Our IGCSE certified teaching community imparts the necessary education to students opting for CLS. Each teacher is dedicated to give 100% attention to the progress of every student.

Assessment

The CLS assessments are designed to test how good a student is in applying knowledge rather than simply memorising information. Internal and External assessments by qualified professionals help chisel the student’s personality and academic prowess into shape.

English as a First language

We offer English as first language, mathematics, science, Cambridge Global Perspectives and ICT Starters.

CLS learners develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any environment and to promote cross-cultural understanding.

For English as a First Language, the curriculum promotes an enquiry-based approach to learning to develop thinking skills and encourage intellectual engagement.

The curriculum is presented in five content areas or ‘strands’. These are further divided into ‘substrands’:

Phonics, Spelling and Vocabulary

Grammar and Punctuation

• Reading
• Writing

Reading

• Fiction and poetry
• Non-fiction

Writing

• Fiction and poetry
• Non-fiction

Speaking and Listening

• Fiction and poetry
• Non-fiction

Mathematics

Our framework also explores six content areas: number, algebra, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving.

The first five are underpinned by problem solving, which provides a structure for the application of mathematical skills. Mental strategies are also an important part of the number content. The curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships, to allow learners apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.

Science

Science covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning investigative work, and recording and analysing data. The scientific enquiry objectives underpin biology, chemistry and physics, which are focused on developing confidence and interest in scientific knowledge. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum.

Cambridge Global Perspectives

Cambridge Lower Secondary Global Perspectives develops the skills of

Research

Analysis

Evaluation

Reflection

Collaboration

Communication

Throughout the program, teachers focus on formative feedback on the skills they want students to develop. When a given challenge is completed, teachers discuss with students ‘what went well’ and how they can improve further, so that students can reflect on, and improve their performance.Students produce individual research projects for Global Perspectives. It enables teachers and students to assess how skills have developed throughout the programme.

Cambridge ICT Starters

Cambridge ICT Starters introduces learners to the key ICT applications they need to acquire that computer literacy and to understand the impact of technology on our daily lives. Modules can be delivered according to the needs of each learning situation and age of the learners.

Learners develop key ICT skills in a range of applications including computer programming, word processing, digital graphics, databases, spreadsheets, email, presentations, video/animation, the internet and web authoring. They also consider wider issues such as eSafety and the adaption of their work to suit their audience.
