Classes and Courses

We are a secondary school which offers the equivalent of grade 8 to grade 12. Our classes are divided in to Junior Secondary and Senior Secondary.

The junior years (J1 and J2) do the Namibia curriculum with additional material from the Cambridge curricula. In these years we focus on providing the learners with the foundations and skills that they will need for their senior secondary examination years.

In the senior years, the learners complete the internationally recognized Cambridge exams, IGCSE’s. They also have the option to write the Namibian Senior Secondary Certificate exams. In senior secondary the learner can choose their subjects depending on their interests and abilities. English and Mathematics can be taken as core or extended levels. 


Junior 1 and 2

When a learner passes J1 or J2 they can move on the next grade in Combretum or can transfer to Grade 9 or 10 respectively in the Namibian schooling system. During the junior years especial emphasis is put on skills development to ensure that the learners are confident with the tools they will need for their senior years. These include map reading, applied mathematics, practical sciences and solid language skills. 

 
Senior 1, 2, and 3

In S1 and S2, the learner covers the IGCSE curriculum, and they also have the option to write the Namibian national exams if they feel that these are a better fit from them. Once they have passed S2, they can either apply for local universities, or they can stay on for another year, S3, to write at a higher level for international universities.
