Somerset College follows the Cambridge International Primary Programme where English, Mathematics and Science form the core curriculum areas. Afrikaans, isiXhosa and Social Science are included in the taught curriculum. Prescribed elements of the National Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements are also covered.
Learning does not take place in isolation and skills such as goal-setting, planning, organisation and maintaining a healthy balance are essential components of each student’s development. Just as a child learns to deal with success, so too should failure be seen as an opportunity to build resilience and determination.
The International Cambridge Primary Checkpoint assessments were written for the first time in 2018.
