The Cambridge curriculum in comparison to other curricula aims to encourage the skills of independent research and investigation, the use of initiative and creativity and the application of knowledge and skills. Students therefore go further than simply having to recall knowledge but also apply it. In addition, with the Cambridge curriculum, a wide range of assessment techniques is used. Emphasis is placed on the use of externally marked examination papers to assess the students' learning and on compulsory practical work where appropriate.
The Cambridge Primary Programme helps teachers and parents gain a greater understanding of their children’s abilities, and their strengths and weaknesses. This is very important, as it helps teachers know which areas to focus on for each individual child. Part of the way teachers assess children’s abilities, is by using Primary Programme Progression Tests, which are marked by the teacher. These tests enable teachers to assess the children's learning.
All children who complete the Primary Programme receive a Certificate of Achievement at the end of their primary education. The Cambridge International Primary Programme used at Orel-Vine is an excellent framework for learning in the primary years and provides a solid foundation for progression to secondary education, including Cambridge IGCSE and O Level.
