‘Education for tomorrow’s world’ – Real world ready

The Mountain Cambridge School has met all the standards required to be a Cambridge International Assessment Examination Centre (Registered Centre ZA 245) and has been awarded International status by University of Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE). Mountain Cambridge School offers a range of internationally accepted qualifications including Cambridge’s A Level, AS Level, IGCSE Level, Secondary 1 Level, ICT Starters and Primary Programmes.  Cambridge Assessment International Education is the world’s largest provider of international qualifications for 14-19 year olds. The Cambridge International Curriculum is designed to teach students how to learn and to go on learning. Our role goes beyond helping students achieve good results, and beyond giving students passports for progression to university or employment. We give our students a curriculum that will bring lifelong success in tomorrow’s world.

Cambridge International Qualifications are welcomed at the world’s leading universities – Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, Oxford and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Cambridge qualifications are recognized locally by the South African Matriculation Board for entrance into South African Universities. In order to comply with the requirements for Matric Exemption certain subject groupings are required. We will guide our students in their subject choices to ensure compliance with the Matriculation Board’s requirements should they intend going on to University.
