Cambridge School

Dear Parents,

We are happy to inform you that Abroad International School Nagoya has become a Cambridge International School. We are able to offer Cambridge exams and qualifications to students in our Primary Program. We are the only international school in Nagoya to have received this top level qualification. Your support will always influence our improvement and we will continue striving for the best.

HOW DO STUDENTS BENEFIT FROM CAMBRIDGE PROGRAMMES?

Cambridge programmes and qualifications prepare students for life – helping them to develop an informed curiosity and lasting passion for learning. Cambridge helps students develop thinking and learning skills – so they become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. Ready to tackle the demands of tomorrow’s world, capable of shaping a better world for the future.

WHAT DO OUR STUDENTS STUDY?

We want each student to fulfil their potential and make the most of their strengths and interests.

So Cambridge offers a wide range of subjects and let every student choose the subjects they love and the subjects they’re best at. Cambridge designs programmes – with the help of expert educators in schools and universities – to challenge students, and get them excited about what they’re learning. They learn about the key concepts of each subject in depth, so they understand them inside and out. We also design our programmes to be flexible, so that teachers can use examples that are relevant to students’ local knowledge. They will learn in English, but develop strong skills in their first language too.

HOW DOES A CAMBRIDGE PROGRAMME WORK?

When we design our programmes, we start by identifying what a student needs to learn. Students have to demonstrate understanding and the core knowledge of a subject, as well as think critically. Exams are there to recognise, reward and encourage learning.

The curriculum in each stage has aims and objectives that support students to become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. These are the attributes of Cambridge learners.

Cambridge Primary Students develop skills and understanding in English, maths and science. Progression tests help teachers check their progress among world schools in more than 150 countries and 9000 schools.

HOW ARE OUR STUDENTS PREPARED FOR THE FUTURE?

Cambridge learners build more than just a deep understanding of their subject.

Being a student of a Cambridge programme means developing the higher order thinking skills to apply what they’ve learned.

Solving problems creatively. Thinking for themselves. Doing their own research and communicating it. Working with other people on a project they’ve designed together.

So we make sure our programmes encourage students to develop the attributes of the Cambridge Learner – confident, responsible, reflective, innoviative and engaged. And help them to succeed in tomorrow’s world.
