Middle School

Lower Secondary Programme (Grade VI to Grade VIII)

There is a Lower Secondary curriculum framework for each subject - English, English as a second language, Mathematics and Science - providing a clear teaching structure.


Lower Secondary English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop the critical skills to respond to a range of information, media and texts with understanding and enjoyment. Learners who follow this curriculum framework will develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding.

English as a second language

This curriculum develops learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English. It has been developed in conjunction with Cambridge Assessment English and is based on the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), used across the world to map learners’ progress in English.


The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: numbers, geometry, measures, handling data and problem solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.


This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning, investigating, recording and analysing data. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum.

Lower Secondary Assessments

Many schools use the Lower Secondary testing structure to assess learner performance and report progress to learners and parents. Lower Secondary assessment uses internationally benchmarked tests, giving parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.
There are two assessment options:

  • Lower Secondary Progression Tests (marked in school)
  • Lower Secondary Checkpoint (marked by Cambridge examiners)

Lower Secondary Progression Tests

Lower Secondary Progression Tests provide valid internal assessment of knowledge, skills and understanding in English, mathematics and science. The tests:

  • enable learning to be assessed each year
  • provide detailed information about the performance of each learner for stages 3, 4, 5 and 6
  • enable teachers to give structured feedback to learners and parents
  • enable teachers to compare strengths and weaknesses of individuals and groups
  • are marked by teachers in your school
  • come with clear guidance, standards and mark schemes
  • can be used any time in the year, as many times as needed

Lower Secondary Checkpoint

Lower Secondary Checkpoint is a diagnostic testing service that helps your learners by giving comprehensive feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in each subject area. We offer Lower Secondary Checkpoint tests twice a year and they are usually taken at the end of Lower Secondary. The tests are marked in Cambridge and each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic report. The Cambridge Global Perspectives assessment is marked by teachers and moderated in Cambridge.
