The Lower Secondary School is for Years 7 to 9. (Age 11-14) The syllabus here follows the Cambridge International Lower Secondary Programme.

Years 7-9 follow the Cambridge International Secondary 1 program which provides a seamless progression from Cambridge Primary to develop learners’ skills and confidence in English, Mathematics and Science. It offers a curriculum framework for educational success for learners, typically 11-14 years old, with an optional testing structure. The curriculum frameworks for English also include an English as a second language option.

Cambridge Secondary 1 is a flexible curriculum and we can adapt it to also provide a curriculum that meets the statutory requirements of the Brazilian Education System. Brazilian History is taught in Portuguese in Y8, and Portuguese is taught in all years at beginner, intermediate and native level.

The Curriculum allows the students to pursue interests in Art, Drama, Music, Computer Programming and Physical Education is an integral part of the program. Students from Years 7-9 can expect about 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes of homework each evening, as they are encouraged to develop independent study habits which will stand them in good stead in the future.
