    • To our IGCSE Students and Families,


      Cambridge International has announced that the May/June 2020 examinations for the Cambridge IGCSE courses will not be held this year due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. The below is from Cambridge International directly.


      The situation with the Covid-19 outbreak is changing rapidly. In recent days, many more countries have decided to extend school closures into May and June, making it impossible for many of our schools to hold examinations.


      Cambridge International have been consulting closely with its global community of schools, who need as much certainty as possible at an uncertain time. The priority is to protect the safety and wellbeing of our students and teachers, ensure fairness for all our students and support them in continuing with their education.


      Today, therefore, Cambridge International have taken the difficult decision not to run our international examinations in the May/June 2020 series in any country. This includes Cambridge IGCSE.


      Cambridge International recognizes that students have been working very hard towards these exams. They will be working with our school to assess students’ achievements using the best available evidence. IGCSE students will receive a grade and a certificate from Cambridge International, given the knowledge and skills they have acquired in their programmes of study. This will ensure students do not face disadvantage as a result of these extraordinary circumstances.


      Cambridge International will provide an update for our school on Thursday, 26 March and as regularly as possible.


      If you have questions in the meantime, please contact our IGCSE coordinator, Christopher Saunders on

      Thank you and stay well.

      Vice Principal & Head of Secondary School
