As the child builds his academic skills, they are encouraged to be more independent in thought and action. They are now accountable and responsible for the work they choose and for the completion of the tasks they have chosen to do. This environment aims to give the child the help it needs to become an active, caring, contributing member of the community to which he/she belongs. Children will gradually be moved towards regular teaching methods from class 5 onwards.
Cambridge Secondary 1 is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. It builds on the foundations of Cambridge Primary, although it is not essential to have completed that stage before beginning.

It provides you with a flexible framework which you can use to develop a curriculum that is tailored to your needs.
