We are fully registered by the Kenyan Ministry of Education and the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) board [Britain]. We follow the Cambridge Curriculum with four pathways fully registered for. The Cambridge primary caters for the age range of 7-12 years; Cambridge Lower secondary, 12-14 years; Cambridge Upper Secondary, 14-16 years and Cambridge Advanced, 16-18 years. The age ranges are for guidance and once in a while, the child may not exactly fit in the brackets.

The Cambridge Primary is organized into stages; from stage one to six. The flexibility of the Cambridge curriculum allows centres to tailor their courses within their context, environment and relevance. From stage 3 to 6, there are progression tests, set by Cambridge and shared with centres to administer, together with their mark schemes. The online tool on the website enables the data to be analyzed and give a clear picture of the progression of the children. The tests are summative; checking if the child has comprehensively mastered the contents at that level. However, for stage 6, centres can administer the progression tests or register for Cambridge Primary Checkpoint examinations. These are diagnostic tests in three subjects; Mathematics, Science and English, set and marked by Cambridge. Comprehensive reports and certificates for every candidate are shared with the centres. They (centres) can use the reports to put in intervention measures as the children progress to the lower secondary.

Cambridge offers a range of subjects at the primary level. They include; English, Mathematics, Science, Music, Art and Design and Computers. We, in addition to these, offer Foreign Language French, Geography and History. General knowledge, Reading and Handwriting are included for stages one and two. A pastoral programme is available for all the children in the primary section.

Lower Secondary Cambridge has learners in year 7 and year 8. At the end of this level, they sit for Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint examinations in three subjects; English, Mathematics and Science. They are awarded certificates and reports, with performance descriptors to advise centres on interventions measures. There are no progression tests at this level. Learners select the subjects to pursue at the upper secondary level. The number of the subjects is capped at a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 10, depending on the academic ability of the learner, career pathway, passion and interest. Parents are heavily involved in the decision-making process. Compulsory subjects are Mathematics, English and Computer Science.

At Cambridge Upper Secondary, learners embark on a three-year course, culminating in the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations. Each candidate receives a certificate with grades for each subject ranging from A*-G.

At the Cambridge Advanced level, the IGCSE candidates select three or four best subjects to pursue at this level. The selection is mainly anchored on the career aspiration of the candidates. The school pegs a minimum of grade C at the IGCSE level to pursue the subject at the advanced level. Candidates follow the staged route-where they sit for the Advanced Subsidiary (AS) level in year 12 and finally the A-Level examinations in year 13. This is the last level before the learner's exit the system and joins colleges. Each level’s score is 50% of the full course.

For better management of the academic programmes, each level (with different stages/years) has a curriculum Coordinator who coordinates all the activities related to curriculum implementation. There five coordinators; For lower primary-stages 1,2 & 3, Upper primary-stages 4, 5 & 6, Lower secondary-year 7 & 8, Upper secondary-years -9, 10 & 11 and Advanced level-year 12 & 13.

Cambridge Assessment International Examinations is the examining body in all the aforementioned examinations. However, for stage 3, the school has an internal Standard Assessment Test (SAT), in addition to the progression tests.
