Key Stage 3

At SKILLS, Key Stage 3 is designed for learners at the ages of 11 to 14. It is designed to develop the student’s fluency in English, competency in Mathematics and Science. Our students learn how to be effective learners in their classrooms, and an influential member of the communities they interact with. The programme develop their ability to communicate confidently with the various media and information they interact with.

Cambridge Secondary 1 develops skills and understanding in English, mathematics and science for the first three years of secondary education. It combines a world-class curriculum, high-quality support for teachers and integrated assessment.

Our curriculum frameworks for English also include an 'English as a second language' option.

This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific inquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific inquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning investigative work, and recording and analyzing data. The scientific inquiry objectives underpin biology, chemistry and physics, which are focused on developing confidence and interest in scientific knowledge. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum. They also take the subjects endorsed by the Egyptian Ministry of education.

Secondary 1 Checkpoint

At the end of year 8 our students sit for the Cambridge Secondary Checkpoint. This Summative Assessment is designed to test the student’s competence through demonstrating their skills through exams delivered through Cambridge International Examinations. Our students sit for their core subjects English as a First Language, Mathematics, and Science. They also take the subjects endorsed by the Egyptian Ministry of education.

Key features

A foundation for progression

Cambridge Secondary 1 provides excellent preparation for Cambridge Secondary 2 and other educational programmers. Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint tests can be used to monitor learners’ readiness for the next stage of education.

International curriculum

Appropriate and relevant internationally, Cambridge Secondary 1 has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top-quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning in local and international schools.


Schools can use Cambridge Secondary 1 with other curricula. No part of the programmer is compulsory, so teachers can use the materials to suit their own situation.
