SUMMERHILL

WORLD CLASS EDUCATION

The barriers that prevent full understanding have been identified. Methods have been devised to overcome these barriers resulting in people who can study anything and use it correctly. At Summerhill we aim for 100% understanding and performance.

In the college we offer a broad range of internationally recognised qualifications, both academic and vocational, designed to develop successful students worldwide.

The Cambridge International Curriculum develops successful students in primary and secondary years. It is a flexible framework and the qualifications in it share common principles, underpinned by the best educational and assessment practice.

College Academics

Cambridge International

Offered from Gr 9 – Gr 12

University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) is the world’s largest provider of international qualifications for 14 – 19 year olds. Students in 157 countries study the Cambridge International curriculum, through a network of 6,000 Cambridge schools.

Cambridge Lower Secondary develops children’s knowledge and skills in Mathematics, English and Science. Student’s application skills are developed in preparation for the next stage of the Cambridge programme.

Cambridge IGCSE qualifications give students in secondary education an excellent preparation for their next steps, including progression to Cambridge International A/AS Level. Cambridge IGCSE is recognised by universities and employers worldwide because they develop problem-solving, investigative and practical skills.
Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 – 16 year olds.

Cambridge International A/AS Levels enable tens of thousands of students to win places every year at more top universities worldwide than any other international qualification. Cambridge International A/AS Levels offer a stimulating, flexible course of post-16 study that gives students the freedom to select the mix of subjects right for them.

College Academics

IEB

Offered from Gr 9 – Gr 12

Students are guided at the end of Grade 9 to choose subjects towards their career choice.

The vision of the IEB is to advance quality teaching and learning in South Africa through an assessment process of integrity, innovation and international comparability.

The IEB is cognisant that assessment is essential in developing learners who are responsible South African citizens, able to negotiate the challenges of a global world.

The IEB’s mission is to make a significant, on-going contribution to human resource development through the design, delivery and promotion of a wide range of high quality, affordable assessment products and services to all sectors.

Through our assessments, we are motivated to develop learners who are:

Critical users of information

Problem solvers

Lifelong learners

Ethical reasoners

Creative and reflective thinkers

Society members respectful of diversity, particularly in the Southern African context

Active citizens who are committed to upholding the principles of the South African Constitution and the wellbeing of all people

The IEB qualification is a recognised South African qualification and is regulated by UMALUSI. It is also recognised internationally for students wishing to study at an overseas university.

CAPS

What is the CAPS?

CAPS stands for Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements. It is a revision of the current National Curriculum Statement (NCS).

With the introduction of CAPS, every subject in each grade has a single, comprehensive and concise policy document that provides details on what teachers need to teach and assess on a grade-by-grade and subject-by-subject basis.

This curriculum review has the aim of ensuring that there is clear guidance and consistency for teachers when teaching. This curriculum is used as a guideline for IEB but Cambridge uses a completely different curriculum.
