Overview

Senior High School Curriculum

The Cambridge Curriculum, which is widely adopted by international schools around the world, including those in Kenya, offers a structured and internationally recognized educational framework. Here’s an overview of how the Cambridge Curriculum typically operates within the context of Kenya, though it’s important to note that specific details may vary between individual schools:

1. Educational Stages:
– Primary: The Cambridge Primary curriculum is typically followed for students aged approximately 5 to 11 years (Years 1 to 6).
– Secondary: The Cambridge Secondary 1 (for students aged approximately 11 to 14 years, corresponding to Years 7 to 9) and Cambridge Secondary 2 (for students aged approximately 14 to 16 years, corresponding to Years 10 and 11, leading to IGCSE examinations) are commonly followed.

2. Subjects and Syllabus:
– The Cambridge curriculum covers a wide range of subjects including English, Mathematics, Sciences, Humanities (such as History, Geography), Languages (other than English), Arts (such as Art and Design, Music), and Physical Education.
– Each subject has a detailed syllabus provided by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), which includes learning objectives, content, and suggested teaching approaches.

3. Assessment:
– The assessment in Cambridge curriculum schools typically culminates in examinations conducted by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
– For Cambridge Secondary 1, assessments are often continuous and formative, focusing on building skills and preparing students for progression to IGCSE.
– IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) examinations at the end of Secondary 2 (Year 11) are internationally recognized qualifications that assess students’ knowledge and understanding across various subjects.

4. Teaching and Learning Approach:
– The Cambridge curriculum emphasizes active learning, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.
– It encourages inquiry-based learning where students are encouraged to explore topics and develop a deep understanding of concepts rather than rote memorization.

5. International Recognition:
– Cambridge qualifications, such as IGCSE and A Levels (for post-secondary education), are widely accepted by universities and employers globally, including in Kenya and other countries.

6. Teacher Training and Support:
– Schools offering the Cambridge Curriculum typically provide training and support for teachers to ensure they are familiar with the curriculum, assessment methods, and teaching strategies recommended by Cambridge.

7. Adaptation to Local Context:
– While following an international curriculum, schools often adapt it to suit the local context and cultural sensitivities of Kenya. This may include incorporating local examples in teaching materials or addressing specific educational needs of Kenyan students.

For specific details on how the Cambridge Curriculum is implemented in individual international schools in Kenya, including any adaptations made to align with local regulations or preferences, it’s advisable to contact the schools directly or visit their official websites.

Entry Requirements

As of January 2022, specific information on the entry requirements for international schools in Kenya for the year 2024 according to the Kenya Ministry of Education or the Cambridge curriculum. However, I can provide you with general guidelines that are typically followed by international schools offering the Cambridge curriculum in Kenya:

1. Age Requirement: International schools often have specific age requirements for different grade levels. For example, students entering Year 7 (Secondary 1) are typically around 11-12 years old.

2. Previous Academic Records: Students may need to provide academic records from their previous school, including transcripts and reports.

3. Entrance Examinations: Some international schools may require students to take entrance examinations to assess their academic abilities, especially in subjects like English and Mathematics.

4. English Language Proficiency: Since the Cambridge curriculum is taught in English, international schools may require proof of English language proficiency, such as scores from standardized tests like IELTS or Cambridge English exams.

5. Interview: A personal interview with the student and sometimes with parents/guardians may be part of the admission process to assess the student’s suitability for the school and to understand their educational background and goals.

6. Visa Requirements: For international students, there may be specific visa requirements set by the Kenyan government that need to be fulfilled.

For the most accurate and updated information regarding specific international schools and their admission requirements for 2024, including any changes or updates from the Ministry of Education or Cambridge, it is recommended to directly contact the schools or visit their official websites closer to the admission period. They usually provide detailed admission guidelines and procedures tailored to their specific curriculum and school policies.
