Our Academic Approach: Cambridge Syllabus



In the latest issue of Cambridge Outlook, they focus on how schools can prepare students effectively for university.

University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), the world's largest provider of international qualifications for 14 – 19 year olds, provides assessment in over 150 countries through a wide network of Centres. Cambridge qualifications are known worldwide for the excellent education they deliver in preparing students for the next stages of their academic or vocational careers. The Cambridge syllabuses are continuoully reviewed and updated to maintain these high standards in order to stay at the forefront of educational development.


We at Wembley College are proud to be part of this network of approximately 6000 Cambridge Centres throughout the world and are convinced that this system has proven itself to produce successful, goal-orientated individuals as is evident in the achievements of our past scholars.


At Wembley College our pupils achieve three qualifications, namely International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) , the Advanced Subsidiary Level (AS Level) and A-Level. The IGCSE is a two year course with examinations being written at the end of Form 4 (Grade 10), and the AS and A Level course is also a two-year course which will be written at the end of Form 5 & 6 (Grade 12)


The Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level represents the first half of a full A level course (one of the most recognized and desirable qualifications around the world) and the AS syllabus is a natural progression from the IGCSE syllabus which is currently examined at the end of our Form 4 year. Our pupils will prepare for their AS examinations in Form 5 and 6 thus enabling them to study a broader range of subjects without committing to doing a full A Level. Our pupils will sit their AS and A level examinations in the October / November of their matric year.
