Canterbury Preparatory has adopted the Cambridge International Primary Programme as our chosen curriculum.

The Cambridge Primary Programme was introduced in 2008 and sets clear learning objectives in English, Science and Mathematics. It focuses on developing knowledge, understanding and skills, which form an excellent foundation for future study. The Cambridge approach develops students who are confident in working with information and ideas; are responsible for themselves and respectful of others; are reflective as students; who develop their ability to learn; are innovative and equipped for new and future challenges and who are intellectually and socially engaged.

A number of progression tests are built into the programme which allow teachers to assess student’s progress at each stage. Cambridge Primary Checkpoint is an optional test for students in the final year of the Primary phase.

In May 2016, Mark Barber, Cambridge International Examinations Senior Manager for Southern Africa, presented an information evening for parents at Canterbury Preparatory. For more information on the Cambridge Curriculum please read the synopsis of the evening.
