Global Community

There is the focus on Christ and students are led in the development of a Christian worldview in all aspects of their education.

There are a wide range of subjects with the flexibility in how to offer them. Cambridge supports the development of a curriculum that suits our context, culture and ethos, and that we tailor to our students’ needs. Leading universities and employers worldwide accept Cambridge education as evidence of academic ability.

Cambridge also provides professional development for our teachers to help them improve their performance and practice throughout their careers. Teaching practices that develop the ability of students to reflect on their learning are encouraged. Schools can draw on a wealth of teaching and learning resources and training for a Cambridge education.

 

Cambridge designs our assessments to be fair, valid, reliable and practicable. We assess what we know to be of value: deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding, and higher level thinking skills. Our flexible assessment structure maximizes time for teaching and learning. Assessment takes place at the end of the course and includes written, oral, coursework and practical assessment.

A Cambridge qualification is widely recognized by universities and employers. Cambridge students can be confident that their qualifications will be understood and valued throughout their education and career, in Ghana and internationally.

Cambridge schools belong to a worldwide education community with connections to other teachers around the world so they can share views, information and resources, and learn from one another.

 

Meet Our Founders:

An effective educational experience uses approaches that value the human spirit and the development of the whole child-physical, social, emotional and cognitive. Maria Montessori 

Education is not only about the subjects that are taught and learnt in school, the certificates gathered and the feeling of pride that comes along with long with them. It is a lifelong experience of asking questions that will require them to find answers to.

Education does not only happen in the school, but it is a combined effort among the pupils, teachers and parents to work to achieve the complete development of the children.

Our focus to promote sound Christian doctrine with solid academics with the aim of developing resilient christian leaders for the word. We believe that the school and parents form one union and that fulfilling these goals is a joint venture shared by both parties.
