Academics - Examinations

Our current curriculum is a blend of the best of local practice together with modern ideas taken mainly from the UK National curriculum. With regard to public examinations, we offer the current Zimsec GCE and O' Level examinations, as the Ministry of Education requires, but we also offer IGCSE (the International General Certificate of Secondary Education), and externalA' Levels. The Ministry has approved our intention to offer external examinations, and we are a Recognised Centre for Cambridge Board (UCLES) , Cambridge International Secondary Checkpoint, Edexcel and AQA examinations.

IGCSE offers students internationally recognised qualifications, which will be recognised by institutions offering Higher Education courses anywhere in the civilised world. The examinations is based less upon simple retention of content than is the GCE O' Level, and is more modern in its approach, emphasising the development of skills of study and analysis which are transferrable to other subjects and areas of life. Under the assessment scheme which we have adopted, there is also a strong element of course work involved in the syllabus, and this contributes to the final examination mark alongside the formal written papers and evaluation of practical performance in appropriate subjects. This offers a greater variety of learning experience as well as removing some of the stress encountered in formal examinations, that are decided entirely upon a once-only end of course formal test.


Some of our teachers have prior experience of GCSE, and have already received accreditation to set coursework tasks and to carry out coursework assessments, and the others are undertaking training courses with UCLES to qualify them in this respect. As we progress to sixth form we will offer both local and external A' levels.
