The Secondary School was developed following requests from parents and successfully opened in September
2015. It has grown each year and now offers places for students in years 7, 8 and 9. We will begin teaching IGCSEs from September 2018 (Year 10).
We have a clear vision for the development of our Secondary School:
To develop a Secondary School which provides:
• A warm, caring and inclusive environment, which values every child as an individual;
• High quality teaching and learning, which exceeds international standards;
• An interesting, varied and challenging curriculum;
• Staff who know the ability and potential of every child.
The Secondary School is a Cambridge Associate School. As a result, our teachers are able to deliver the prestigious Cambridge Curriculum.
In years 7, 8 and 9, the Cambridge Curriculum covers English, Mathematics and Science. Other curricular areas are based on the British National Curriculum, but are adapted to meet the needs and interests of our pupils, living in Malawi and as global citizens.
Subjects taught in Years 7, 8 and 9:
|Science||Religious Education||Art and Design|
The IGCSE programme will begin in September 2018 for students entering Year 10. They will sit their exams in May 2020. Students will study for nine IGCSEs, accredited by the University of Cambridge, The IGCSEs will include compulsory subjects and options selected by the students/parents.
Compulsory Subjects in Years 10 and 11:
|First Language English||Mathematics||French Foreign Language|

Options in Years 10 and 11:

All students will have a compulsory weekly PE class, which is not an exam class, but a core element of the curriculum.
