Cambridge International’s mission is to provide ‘Excellence in Education’

The aim is to ensure that the educational integrity is at the heart of all assessments and that tests and qualifications are only of value if they inform the learning process and reflect the true status of an individual’s knowledge and understanding; to ensure that all learners access the benefits of their education through a fair and accurate assessment of their skills, knowledge and understanding; to unlock the power of education for every learner and help them become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged.

Cambridge International curriculum is an International trademark set for global standards of education, worldwide. It is offered in more than 10,000 schools across 160 countries and is recognised by universities and employers across the world. A structured curriculum characterised by academic rigour helps learners enhance their skills and knowledge as they progress from one grade level to another.

The two stages of the Cambridge Pathway, lead the students seamlessly from Lower Secondary (grades 6 to 8) through Upper secondary- IGCSE (grades 9 & 10). The curriculum allows the requisite flexibility to meet the learners’ personal and cultural needs. Cambridge philosophy of unlocking the child’s potential to make him/her a passionate lifelong learner blends with the school’s vision of creating a joyful learning environment. The 5 pillars of our Happy Minds’ Model represent the Cambridge attributes (confident, reflective, engaged, responsible and innovative) transforming our students into responsible global citizens.
