High School/A Levels

a-levelsCambridge IGCSE (Grades 9 and 10) is typically for learners aged 14 -16 years. Cambridge IGCSE is a globally recognised qualification and provides excellent progression to the next stage of Cambridge International Education – Cambridge Advanced (Grades 11-12) for 16-19 years.
Cambridge Advanced helps learners to develop deep understanding and independent learning and critical thinking skills which universities value highly. It builds on the foundations of IGCSEs and leads to entry to universities worldwide.
