WELCOME

The Senior Primary phase is from Grade 4 to Grade 7 in the age groups of 9 to 13.

Grade 4 to 7 enjoys the input from specialist teachers for each subject. Our classes are small and we do not deviate from the total of 27 learners per class.

Our school motto, Real World Ready, is based upon 6 core values: hard work, honesty, respect, discipline, trust and enthusiasm. These values serve as a compass pointing out what it means to be true to oneself. Honouring these values will guide our students in fulfilling their goals.

MCS provides our learners with a holistic education. Our school follows the Cambridge International Curriculum whilst incorporating analytical & creative thinking and “whole-brain”/creative teaching strategy.

The core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science remain a key focus, while aspects of the other traditional school subjects are incorporated into a cross-curricular programme that teaches core 21st Century skills such as higher order thinking, problem solving, communication, team-work and reflection.

There are considerably less mark-based assessments in Grades 4-7 and as a result, the homework burden on students is greatly reduced.

At Mountain Cambridge School, we believe in growing and challenging our children in all spheres – academically, sporting and culturally. We offer an extensive range of sporting and cultural activities with something to interest and extend every child. There is also an extensive Leadership Programme in place that creates numerous opportunities for students to grow in the various student-leadership initiatives on offer.

Mountain Cambridge Senior Primary phase is an energised, lively, carefully structured and engaging environment where children from Grade 4 to Grade 7 are encouraged to be curious, creative and collaborative within a warm and nurturing community of inspiring and dedicated teachers.

“Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.” – Plato
