The Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme is a framework for increasing educational success for students in Years 7 to 9.
This programme builds on the Primary stage, and develops student’s knowledge and skills in Mathematics, English and Science. CS1 also provides us with a means of tracking student progress through the lower Secondary phase, with an integrated package of teaching, learning and assessment materials.
At the ends of Years 7 and 8 students take the Progression Tests in Mathematics, English and Science. These are designed to allow teachers to follow the progress of their students over time and analyse performance within their classes and against an external benchmark. These Progression Tests lead on from the CP tests for Years 3, 4, 5, and 6.
At the end of Lower Secondary (Year 9) the Cambridge Checkpoint tests are used, internally, by our teachers to assess students strengths and weaknesses before they move into the 14-16/IGCSE stage.
