IGCSE – International General Certificate for Secondary Education

Cambridge Assessment International Education is a part of Cambridge University, and prepares school students for life, helping them to develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. After a rigorous accreditation process, St. Peter’s International School gained recognition as a Cambridge School, offering the International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE) Programme.

Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year-old children, attracting over 900,000 entries every year, from 140 countries.


Cambridge IGCSE helps students to develop their knowledge and understanding, and skills in subject content and intellectual enquiry. Cambridge IGCSE has been designed for students worldwide, including those whose English is not their first language. We offer students the flexibility to choose from around 16 subjects at Cambridge IGCSE, meaning they can study the subjects they enjoy and are best at. Assessment takes place at the end of the course and offers students a range of ways to demonstrate their learning, including written, oral, coursework and practical assessments. There are also options to suit learners of different abilities. The grades awarded at Cambridge IGCSE are A*–G, with A* being the highest. This means that Cambridge IGCSE is a great foundation for further study, including the International Baccalaureate Diploma and other post-16 routes.
