Cambridge education at OXIS

Five elements lie at the heart of a Cambridge education at OXIS:
international curriculum, teaching and learning, assessment, international recognition and global community.
and Learning
We offer a wide range of subjects and give schools flexibility in how to offer them. We support schools in developing a curriculum that suits their context, culture and ethos, and that they can tailor to their students’ needs.
We provide professional development for teachers, to help them improve their performance and practice throughout their careers. We encourage teaching practices that develop the ability of students to reflect on their learning.
We design our assessments to be fair, valid, reliable and practicable. We assess what we know to be of value: deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding, and higher level thinking skills. Our flexible assessment structure maximises time for teaching and learning.

Our qualifications are widely recognised by universities and employers. Cambridge students can be confident that their qualifications will be understood and valued throughout their education and career, in their home country and internationally.
Cambridge schools belong to a worldwide education community. We support professional learning communities which connect teachers around the world so that can share views, information and resources, and learn from one another.

The OXIS curriculum

Developing the modern mind

Our focus is on the development of the modern mind. Most schoolwork will be deployed electronically, and students will be using their personal devices to access class material, including textbooks.
There are two strands availed to students:
1: Scholastic Aptitude Tests
2: The British Curriculum

Students can pursue both the SATs and the AS and Advanced Levels if they wish. Students at the Lower School will transition from the Lower School to the Middle and Upper Schools Level seamlessly, and there is no need for students to write any examinations to move from one level to another.
Your child will not have to write the SEA examination.

A choice of pathways

At OXIS Advanced, the students will have access to the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT examinations) and Advanced Placement (AP) or International General Certificate of Secondary Education (iGCSE) and Advanced Level examinations (AS & A Level). In general, for University admission, American Universities will be looking for at least five subjects at iGCSE and/or good SAT test scores. SAT subject tests are high school level tests. AP examinations are College-Level examinations. American Colleges and Universities may grant placement and course credits who obtain high scores on the AP examinations.

British Universities require for entrance at least five subjects at GCSE and three A Levels along with General Studies.
