International Secondary 1 (Checkpoint) is a world-class education programme, typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. It develops skills and understanding in English, Mathematics and Science.
The International Secondary 1 starts learners on an educational journey for their first years of secondary education, increasing their knowledge and skills at each stage. It provides a natural progression for children from primary education and prepares them for post-14 education programmes that lead to formal qualifications.
A number of progress checks are built into the International Secondary 1 programme, which enable teachers to monitor your child’s development. Short progression tests are a valuable way for teachers to understand your child’s strengths, and identify areas where more help is required. The emphasis of the tests is on showing where your child is on their learning journey, rather than getting right or wrong answers.
Cambridge Checkpoint tests can be taken in the final year of International Secondary 1. These tests are available in English, Mathematics and Science and are marked in Cambridge and must be registered through an authorised Cambridge International Exams Centre. On completion of Cambridge Checkpoint, your child will receive a statement of achievement and detailed feedback on their strengths and weaknesses. This helps your school to advise on different progression routes after age 14 and choose the one that will be most suitable for your child.
