Five elements lie at the heart of a Cambridge education at OXIS:
international curriculum, teaching and learning, assessment, international recognition and global community.
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.
Teaching and learning
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 OXBRIDGE INTERNATIONAL PRESCHOOL
Ages 3 – 5
Our preschool offers a balanced, customized experience for the cognitive, social and spiritual development of the children in our care.
We celebrate life and love and learning. The Oxbridge International Preschool is a journey of discovery and the making of new friendships for emotional development and well-being in a nurturing environment.
Our children learn a second language, in a state-of-the-art campus designed for exploration and expansion of the whole child. Our range of sporting activities is available for our Pre-School students.
In keeping with the OXIS philosophy, our student to teacher ratio is lower than the national or private school averages, and will not exceed 12:1. This ensures personalised care and attention for your child. Subject to space availability, our OXIS Pre-Schoolers are given preference for Lower School admission.
Grades 1 – 5
Ages 5 – 11*
*age ranges for guidance only
OXIS Lower School begins an exciting journey of education and friendship. This is usually for children ages about 5-11 years old, and aims to provide a solid foundation in English, Mathematics and Science for students at the beginning of their schooling and at the front end of the Cambridge Pathway. The Lower School aims to deliver an understanding of core concepts which are age-appropriate as well as develop creativity, expression and wellbeing.
A range of assessment methods are used and there is very frequent, detailed, personalised reporting to parents on the progress of each child. This includes comparison with children on a similar age worldwide as well as analytics on each child’s performance over time. We meet each parent regularly, and hold in-depth discussions on each child’s progress.
Our parents report a 100% satisfaction rate for the academic year 2020/2021 for the Lower School.
(Cambridge Lower Secondary)
Grades 6 – 8
Ages 11 – 14*
*age ranges for guidance only
OXIS Middle School continues the learning journey seamlessly from our Lower School, bridging primary development with more advanced concepts to engage the developing child in an age-appropriate way. We presently offer 8 integrated subjects supported by the best teaching materials and techniques in the world. In this stage, students are introduced to sophisticated concepts in entrepreneurship including new business formation, digital literacy and information and communication technologies, including basic programming, robotics and gaming for learning.
A range of assessment methods are used and there is very frequent, detailed, personalised reporting to parents on the progress of each child. This includes comparison with children on a similar age worldwide as well as analytics on each child’s performance over time.
There are also Cambridge CEM computer-based assessments for 11-14 year olds which help to identify and diagnose learning needs, measuring and benchmarking learner’s potential. The baseline and diagnostic assessments adapt to each student’s level, accurately and quickly identifying their abilities in core academic skills. The tests measure the learners’ aptitude in core skills and because they are computer based, results are provided automatically.
We meet each parent regularly to discuss results, with in-depth discussions on each child’s progress.
Our parents report a 100% satisfaction rate for the academic year 2020/2021 for our Middle School.
(Cambridge Upper Secondary)
Grades 9 – 10
Ages 15 – 17*
Our Upper School offers learners a route to Cambridge iGCSE, the gold standard for education worldwide. This builds on the foundations of Middle School and provides a broad and balanced study programme across a wide range of subjects using learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning.
This is an intense, rewarding experience for students who are getting ready for examinations. The iGCSE offers a flexible curriculum with subject area choices in excess of 70 in any combination. It is the most popular international qualification for students between the ages of 14 and 16 in the world. OXIS does not limit subject combinations for its students, leaving them open to choosing from a broad range rather than limiting them to science or humanities in the choices of subjects they wish to take for examinations.
Our parents report a 100% satisfaction rate for the academic year 2020/2021 for the Upper School.
Ages 16 – 20*
Cambridge Advanced is typically for learners aged 16 to 20 years who need advanced study to prepare for university and higher education. It offers learners two routes: Cambridge International AS & A Level, and SATs.
OXIS Advanced builds on the foundations of OXIS Upper School, although learners do not need to complete that stage before this one.
Our Advanced programme is for learners aged 16 – 19 who are preparing for university. At OXIS we offer the Cambridge AS and A levels, which help learners develop independent study skills that the world’s best universities value highly.
A range of assessment methods are employed supporting frequent, detailed, personalised reporting to parents on the progress of each child. This includes comparison with children of a similar age worldwide as well as analytics on each child’s performance over time. We also forecast grades where possible. We meet each parent regularly, and hold in-depth discussions on each child’s progress.
THE SCHOLASTIC APTITUDE TEST (SAT)
OXIS offers teaching and training for preparation for the SAT examinations. These classes run for about 12 weeks, and run on a scheduled basis. Attention is very personal and we use the best tutors locally and internationally to prepare learners for the test.
This route is open to learners after the iGCSE phase (i.e. around the ages of 16-18) as an addition to, or replacement for, Cambridge Advanced Levels.oxis
