The International Virtual School (Mountain Cambridge School online) has been approved by Cambridge Assessment International Education to offer its world-leading Cambridge programme online. The International Virtual School is part of a small number of selected schools trialling the processes necessary to register with Cambridge International to offer the Cambridge Pathway online.
The Cambridge programme for students aged 11 to 19 is made up of three stages – Cambridge Lower Secondary, Cambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced – giving students a clear path for educational success. Each stage combines a world-class curriculum, high-quality support for teachers and integrated assessment.
Cambridge Upper Secondary leads to Cambridge IGCSE, the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year olds. Cambridge Advanced prepares students for university and higher education and leads to Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications.
Every year, nearly a million students from 10 000 schools in 160 countries prepare for their future with Cambridge programmes and qualifications. Success with Cambridge often gives students admission to the world’s best universities – in the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Germany and beyond.
Michael O’Sullivan, Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment International Education, said: “We are delighted to announce that The International Virtual School has joined our global community of Cambridge schools and we look forward to a long and productive relationship with them.”
Carolina van Heerden, Executive Head of the Mountain Cambridge School in Hartbeespoort and The International Virtual School said: “It will give our school a wonderful opportunity to be a part of a global virtual network. Our current students will benefit greatly from an expanded staff with direct exposure to, and support from, the Cambridge Virtual Learning Environment. We are looking forward to being part of this wonderful opportunity.”
