Where knowledge leads, success follows. Our students are individually tutored so they learn how to stand on their own two feet without needing anyone to help them. They reach university well ahead.

Top Cambridge School

Cambridge International repeatedly awarded the college its Top Centre Certificate and Top Cambridge School Award.


As a Cambridge International School  and Cambridge Primary School registered by Cambridge Assessment International Education we teach a unified, international curriculum giving children a seamless progression all the way through their schooling  from Year 1 to Year 13, and qualifications recognised for their excellence by employers and universities world-wide. 


Our small size is one of the factors contributing to consistent excellence.  It is easy to overlook the flexibility of a small school, imagining that bigger schools can offer greater subject selection and success.  Because our Senior College is set up to teach classes of 1-5 students, we can offer all the subjects in the curriculum with no timetabled limits on which subjects go with each other (a normal restriction in larger schools).
