International School of South Africa

Primary Academics

ISSA Primary School

Academic Program

The International School of South Africa subscribes to the prestigious Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) – The Gold Standard in International Education. This curriculum ensures that the Primary School academic programme is effective and provides a sound foundation for our learners.

As an independent school, The International School of South Africa has the ability to be flexible with learning programmes and can offer a curriculum that is both inclusive and internationally relevant. Learners are prepared to excel in the high school environment – with many of our students performing in the top percentile at the end of their A levels.

Small classes across the entire Primary School, highly experienced teachers and the provision of teaching assistants and interns are central features of these formative years of our children.

Cambridge Curriculum

ISSA Primary has adopted Cambridge Primary as of 2013. It is a flexible curriculum that is used in conjunction with other subjects, contemporary trends and methodology which have been in place at our school. It allows our children to be fully prepared for the Cambridge Secondary curriculum, continued at our High School.

Cambridge Primary develops learners who are confident, responsible, innovative and intellectually and socially engaged. The blending of Cambridge Primary and our existing model enhances our holistic approach and caters for all children.

Learning Support Programme

The Learning Support Programme is an intervention programme that aims to provide students with the opportunity to develop the necessary academic and social skills to ensure a positive school experience. Students on the Programme are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning; they must know their strengths and weaknesses and work to accomplish success.
