Cambridge Primary, typically for 5-11 year olds, gives schools a curriculum framework to develop English, Mathematics, and Science skills, knowledge and understanding in younger learners. Cambridge Primary provides guidance for curriculum development and classroom teaching and learning. It enables teachers to assess children's learning as they progress with two optional assessments: Cambridge Primary Progression Tests and Cambridge Primary Checkpoint.

Our curriculum frameworks for English also include an English as a second language option.


Foundation for secondary education

Cambridge Primary aids identification of a learner's strengths and weaknesses and can be used to support learning and development. It provides learners with excellent preparation so they can progress seamlessly into Cambridge Secondary 1 and beyond.

External benchmark

As an international programme, Cambridge Primary provides teachers with an external benchmark to inform their teaching and easily measure learners' progress over time. It also enables detailed, structured reporting to parents.

International curriculum

Appropriate and relevant internationally, Cambridge Primary has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top-quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning in local and international schools.


Cambridge Primary complements a range of teaching methods and curricula. No part of the programme is compulsory and schools have freedom to choose the parts that best suit their situation.

Comprehensive support for teachers

As well as face to face and online training, Curriculum Frameworks, Teacher Guides and lists of resources, teachers also have access to a discussion forum where they can share ideas with thousands of other Cambridge teachers around the world.


Using Cambridge Primary with other curricula

The modular nature of Cambridge Primary means that it can either be used as the central teaching curriculum or to complement other curricula.

Teachers may continue to follow a local curriculum, to meet the statutory requirements of their national system, whilst using the Cambridge Primary Progression Tests to enhance their teaching and reporting. Similarly, Cambridge Primary can be used for teaching and tracking the core skills in English, Mathematics and Science while another curriculum is used for any other subjects that may be taught.





Cambridge Secondary 1 provides a seamless progression from Cambridge Primary - or can be used as a standalone curriculum - to develop learners’ skills and confidence in English, Mathematics and Science. It offers a curriculum framework for educational success for learners, typically 11-14 years old, with an optional testing structure.

Our curriculum frameworks for English also include an English as a second language option.


International benchmark

Cambridge Secondary 1 incorporates internationally benchmarked tests.

Tests for Cambridge Checkpoint are standardised, set and marked by us, so provide an international benchmark of student achievement enabling teachers to advise learners and parents of the suitability of different progression routes.

Monitoring student progress

Cambridge Progression Tests and analysis software provide detailed feedback on learners’ strengths and weaknesses in the core skills of English, Mathematics and Science at the end of each stage. Schools can use this feedback to improve teaching, support learning and report student progress to parents.

Flexible programme, flexible assessment

Schools can use Cambridge Secondary 1 with other curricula. No part of it is compulsory, so teachers can use the materials to suit their own situation. Teachers can use the progression tests at the end of each stage; or at any point during the year.

Teachers can continue to follow a local curriculum, to meet the statutory requirements of their national system - and at the same time, use the progression tests to enhance their teaching and reporting.

Links to other stages

Cambridge Secondary 1 has been developed to link seamlessly with Cambridge Primary and provides standardised tests to allow careful monitoring of progress from primary to lower secondary phases. It also provides excellent preparation for learners embarking on Cambridge Secondary 2; both for Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge O Level courses.

At the end of the programme, Cambridge Checkpoint assessments are available to provide detailed feedback on learners’ strengths and weaknesses.





Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international curriculum for 14-16 year olds, leading to globally recognised and valued Cambridge IGCSE qualifications. It is part of the Cambridge Secondary 2 stage.

It incorporates the best in international education for learners at this level. It develops in line with changing needs, and is regularly updated and extended. Cambridge IGCSE teachers can draw on excellent resources, training and advice from subject experts.


Cambridge IGCSE encourages learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning. It develops learners’ skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving, giving learners excellent preparation for the next stage in their education. Schools can build a core curriculum, extend it to suit their learners and introduce cross-curricular perspectives. Clearly defined learning outcomes and content, mean Cambridge IGCSE is compatible with other curricula and is internationally relevant and sensitive to different needs and cultures.

Schools can offer any combination of subjects. Each subject is certificated separately. Over 70 subjects are available, including more than 30 language courses, offering a variety of routes for learners of different abilities.

Schools have the option of assessing learners using only external examinations or, in most subjects, combining examinations with coursework. Coursework is set and marked by the teacher and externally moderated by Cambridge.

Teachers who have received training from Cambridge, or who possess suitable experience of marking coursework may carry out this assessment. In most subjects there is a choice between core and extended curricula, making IGCSE suitable for a wide range of abilities. Each learner’s performance is benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades. There are clear guidelines which explain the standard of achievement for different grades. Cambridge IGCSE examination sessions occur twice a year, in May/June and October/November. Results are issued in August and January.
