The different levels and subjects at Saintsburg

Pre International GCSE

We advise the following programs to be done on site as far as possible and online only if the mother or father can be very involved.

Kids develop skills needed to form a firm foundation in learning

We focus on making difficult concepts easy by presenting them in a concrete way. We alway start with the end in mind and make sure a secure network is formed when the kids are still young. This ensures the IGCSE work comes easily and is manageable.

Subjects Covered

International GCSE

In most Cambridge schools this is a two year course at ages 15 and 16 but we start with this work for kids as ‎young as 12 and call it Priming. After Priming they do year IG 1 and IG 2 until they are ready for the Exam Prep ‎year. The ages of kids doing Exam Prep can vary greatly from 13 – 16, depending on where the student is emotionally and academically.

Priming Classes

Students get a concrete overview of the whole IGCSE Syllabus. Lessons are fun, engaging and very noisy! Students get the opportunity to work with lab equipment and do basic experiments Lessons are taught with concrete objects. assignments include YouTube videos, simulations, games, quizzes, worksheets, Seneca and an AI programme for writing. Students are also exposed to basic international GCSE exam questions so that they can start getting used to the exam board’s approach to exam questions.

This is a year where we build confidence, vocabulary, a basic understanding of difficult concepts and a love for each subject.

AS and A-Level

AS is more or less the South African alternative to a matric. It is a much better preparation for University and life than a CAPS matric due to the amount of deep level thinking required by the course. South African universities accept AS and International universities typically requires three subjects on A-Level. The age truly depends on the student’s history and mindset, students can vary from 14 years to 19 years.
