The ISZ Secondary is divided into three sections: Years 7-9 Cambridge Lower Secondary, Years 10-11 IGCSE, and Years 12-13 A-Levels. All three sections use an internationally recognized curriculum that is rigorous and challenging.
Cambridge Lower Secondary (Years 7-9)
By offering the rigorous Cambridge Lower Secondary, Years 7, 8 and 9 we can provide a broad and balanced education for our students, helping them to thrive throughout their schooling, work and life.
With a number of subjects to choose from, including English, mathematics and science, there are plenty of opportunities to develop creativity, expression and wellbeing in a variety of ways. The curriculum is flexible, and we offer a combination of the subjects available that reflect our context, culture and ethos.
Each Cambridge syllabus adopts a ‘spiral’ approach, building on previous learning to help advance students’ study. The curriculum reflects the latest thinking in each subject area, drawn from expert international research and consultation with schools. Our students should enter Cambridge Upper Secondary more confidently as it builds on our students’ development from the Cambridge Lower Secondary.
IGCSE (Years 10 and 11)
In Years 10 and 11 students follow courses that lead to International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). These exams are accredited by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
We offer courses in English Language, World Literature, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths, History, Business & Economics, Geography, Swahili, French and ICT. Students are taught by experienced and qualified specialist teachers.
