CIE is a non teaching department of the University of Cambridge in the UK. CIE is one of the world’s largest providers of international examinations.
In Key Stage 4 , when students are in Years 10 and 11, all our subjects follow CIE syllabi. These lead to IGCSE examinations at the end of Year 11. The IGCSE is a well established internationally recognised qualification and is, in fact, the world’s most commonly taken international examination.
CIE set the subject syllabuses and both set and mark the examination papers. This means that the examinations are completely independent of the school which is one of the reasons they are so highly regarded.
To help them to prepare for these examinations all students take a school examination in all of their chosen subjects at the end of Year 10 and in the middle of Year 11.
