CURRICULUM

OUR EDUCATIONAL OFFERING

COLLEGE


Reddam House Durbanville offers two respected curricula, the Cambridge International (CI) and the Independent Examinations Board (IEB). Our offering also includes a broad range of cultural and sporting activities in a secure, relaxed, self-disciplined environment so we can nurture individuality, talent and self-assurance. We understand the importance of education; we therefore equip our students to face an increasingly challenging global future with pride and confidence by inspiring true excellence in learning.

We strive for excellence in our academics. Every assessment, paper, test and exam matters. We are focused, we are driven, we are motivated and we achieve great things. Little by little, day by day, we pitch up and do our best… To learn more, watch WE'RE ALL IN!

Cambridge International (CI)

Independent Examinations Board (IEB)

Cambridge International (CI)


The Cambridge International (CI) curriculum prepares students to sit the international examinations administered by Cambridge International (CI). The CI, in turn, is an examination board which operates under the auspices of Cambridge Assessment, which was founded in 1858 as a department of the University of Cambridge. Cambridge qualifications include international A-level, AS-level and IGCSE.

The Cambridge International (CI) curriculum for high school and the Cambridge Primary curriculum are internationally recognised curricula, devised through the University of Cambridge Education faculty. They are based on a set of common principles underpinned by the best educational and assessment practice; quality and coherence delivered through the curriculum with guaranteed assessment standards and high quality resources underpinned by sound training and professional development .

Cambridge International curriculum programmes and qualifications set the global standard for international education. Experts in the field of education reflecting the latest educational research, create the syllabus content providing a strong platform for students to progress from one stage to another. All well supported by teaching and learning resources.

In the College, Cambridge International has two main assessments; IGCSE and AS/A-levels.  These exams are usually taken in grade 11 and grade 12 respectively, with A-levels as a choice for post matric. The results of these internationally set, run and marked exams are transferrable and accepted in every major university in the world – including universities and tertiary colleges in South Africa. 

Beyond the credibility of the syllabus itself, Cambridge International schooling and the syllabus is notably more challenging than local syllabi in all subjects. This has the effect of preparing its candidates far more rigorously, not only for tertiary education requirements, but also for work place critical thinking and problem solving expectations. 

 

Independent Examinations Board (IEB)


To provide a broader offering to the Reddam House Durbanville community, the College introduced the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) curriculum from Grade 10 in January 2018.

Much like the CI (Cambridge International) curriculum, the IEB is an internationally benchmarked qualification and is equivalent to the Cambridge International AS-levels.

Students prepare for an IEB National Senior Certificate (NSC). The following subjects are offered from Grade 10: English (1st Language), Afrikaans (1st Additional Language), Mathematics / Mathematical Literacy, Life Orientation (LO), Geography, History, Business Studies, Accounting, French, Art, Design, Drama, Music, Dance, Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, Computer Applications Technology (CAT), Information Technology (IT), Advanced Programme Mathematics (APM) and Advanced Programme English (APE).

Our students participate in a variety of Olympiads and Benchmark examinations throughout the College. This exposes our students to different types of questions in a variety of styles and formats which builds mental agility and prepares students for the workplace.
