Upper secondary education

Ages 14-16 Cambridge Upper Secondary – IGCSE

Study or work anywhere in the world

Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular curriculum for 14-16 year olds. Many countries recognise the International General Certificate of Secondary Education as equivalent to national examinations. Higher education institutions and employers around the world accept IGCSE as evidence of academic ability. Whether your onward journey takes you to work or study at home or abroad, IGCSE is just the ticket.

The bridge between IMYC and IBDP

Making connections is fundamental to our approach at Eerde. We see the IGCSE curriculum as the perfect bridge from the International Middle Year Programme. IGSCE students at Eerde develop skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving and truly master strategies for life-long learning. So it’s an excellent launch pad to the International Diploma Baccalaureate programme.

Global Perspectives

Global Perspectives is a key element of the IGCSE curriculum. The programme at Eerde encourages you to consider global themes from different perspectives, which includes the region you live in. Some of the practical projects students have worked on to supplement their study are collecting clothing for refugees in the region, setting up an insect hotel to increase biodiversity, and organising plastic collection to combat plastic soup.

Global Perspectives really opened my eyes to being a citizen of the world
