Lower Secondary

Year 7 – Year 9 (11 – 14 years old)

Cambridge Lower Secondary

Cambridge International Education for Lower Secondary is a programme developed for learners aged 11 to 14 years. At HAIS, we have shaped this programme to further engage students in their learning and in developing young learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. The programme provides a natural progression for children from primary education to lower secondary, and prepares them for higher secondary education programmes, leading to formal qualifications.
