Cambridge Primary

International curriculum

Cambridge Primary sets clear learning objectives in English sets clear learning objectives in English as a first or second language, mathematics, science and Cambridge Global Perspectives. It focuses on developing knowledge and skills in core subjects which form an excellent foundation for future study.

Cambridge Primary starts learners on an exciting educational journey, setting out what they should be able to do at each stage of their primary education. Typically for learners aged 5 to 11 years, it develops learner skills and understanding through the primary years in English as a first or second language, mathematics, science, Cambridge Global Perspectives and ICT.


The programme is flexible: schools can offer any combination of the Cambridge Primary subjects. This means they can use Cambridge Primary while following their school or national curriculum, or offer the entire programme. At each stage, students build on their previous learning – and our syllabus design reflects a ‘spiral’ approach, providing a natural progression throughout the primary years and beyond.

Our assessments

Many schools use the Cambridge Primary testing structure to assess learner performance and report progress to learners and parents. Cambridge Primary uses internationally benchmarked tests, giving parents extra trust in the feedback they receive. There are two testing options: Cambridge Primary Progression Tests and Cambridge Primary Checkpoint. Cambridge Primary assessments, including Cambridge Primary Checkpoint, provide teachers with an international benchmark to inform their teaching and easily measure learners' progress over time. They also enable detailed, structured reporting to parents.

Support for schools

A range of support resources is available to help teachers plan and deliver Cambridge Primary in English as a first or second language, mathematics, science and Cambridge Global Perspectives. Resources are also available for Cambridge ICT Starters. Teachers can access these resources including curriculum frameworks and teacher guides once their school becomes a registered Cambridge school.
