Primary School

The Primary school occupies shared facilities with the pre-school. The children enjoy a wide range of academic facilities within the faculty.

Cambridge Primary is an education programme for young learners that combine a world-class curriculum, high-quality support for teachers and integrated assessment. Many of the attitudes that have been fostered earlier during the preparatory years are extended and developed as the learning experience broadens.

We always try to identify and nurture those pupils with academic abilities ahead of the years. Such children have the opportunity to excel further in their academic progress.

Secondary School

Cambridge Secondary 1 is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. Cambridge Secondary 1 develops skills and understanding in English, mathematics and science for the first three years of secondary education. It combines a world-class curriculum, high-quality support for teachers and integrated assessment.

Our curriculum frameworks for English also include an 'English as a second language' option.

Cambridge Secondary 1 provides excellent preparation for Cambridge Secondary 2 and other educational programmes.

Cambridge Secondary 2 is typically for learners aged 14 to 16 years. It offers learners two routes: Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge O Level.

Cambridge Secondary 2 builds on the foundations of Cambridge Secondary 1, although learners do not need to complete that stage before this one.

Islamic Studies

The school facilitates daily madrasah classes for those children attending the school. These classes are held from 2.45pm to 4.45pm for Primary and 2.15pm to 4.30pm for Secondary. The children that attend school who come from a diverse range of local cultures are able to learn a broad mix of subjects. We have a strict comprehensive syllabus which conforms teaching methods and learning objectives to ensure that they are focused on key priority areas.

Hifz Classes

For those children that have a strong desire to and demonstrate the ability for memorisation of the Qur'an, we have hifz classes.

Salah (Prayer)

We are committed to facilitating special time for performing Salah in the school for boys and girls.

Mu`awiyah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah said, “When Allah wishes good for someone, He bestows upon him the understanding of Deen.”[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: Knowledge and understanding of Deen (religion) here stands for the understanding of the Qur’an and Hadith, religious injunctions, and knowledge of the lawful and the unlawful. This Hadith highlights the excellence of knowledge and the fact that it is a sign of Allah’s Help to the person who possesses it and acts upon it.
