LSL builds on the primary stage, and develops students’ knowledge and skills.

The 4 major subjects are:

  • Mathematics;
  • English;
  • Information and Communication Technology;
  • Science (which includes Biology, Chemistry and Physics)

At the end of grade 8/form 1 students will write Cambridge Checkpoint Tests in these 4 major subjects, set and marked by the CAIE, providing detailed diagnostic information on students’ strengths and weaknesses, before students move onto the IGCSE Level.

Other subjects offered on this level are:

Afrikaans 2nd Language, Social Sciences, Economic and Management Sciences (EMS), and the students will write internal exams in these subjects.

Non exam subjects: Personal Development Programme, Art and Music.
