Makini Schools introduces the Cambridge Curriculum
Makini Schools on Thursday announced the introduction of the Cambridge Curriculum to its current offering.
The school, in a statement to newsrooms, said it will continue offering the National curriculum; both the 8-4-4, which has been the schools’ hallmark of academic excellence, and the CBC, in which it is a Government Control School.
“This Cambridge offering will ensure that Makini meets the needs of all the learners and parents, and especially those who require an international curriculum based on and adapted to our unique Kenyan environment and requirements,” read the statement.
“It will target those seeking to pursue an international curriculum for High School (in particular class 8 learners), an international curriculum that delivers high quality education but sustained at a mid-fee range, a curriculum that would enable transition to the next grade level as well as an international curriculum enriched with Kenyan content and applicable to the requirements of our learners.”
The Cambridge Curriculum will pioneer from Year 4 to Year 9 starting September 7, 2020.
The institution’s Education Director, Angelica Ouya, said: “Makini Schools has always kept with the times and endeavours to continue being a leader in education and innovation. We ensure to meet the needs of our learners and live up to our education philosophy, which is to prepare our children for a happy and successful future in a forever changing world.”
The Cambridge framework will provide for the key subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. Other subjects include History, ICT (Computers), Physical Education, Geography and Global Perspectives as well as Swahili and French which will be taught as additional languages.
“The Cambridge Curriculum will also kick off virtually in September and will be based on the same Makini ethos and values,” added Headteacher, Hezron Onyango, who is leading the implementation of the Cambridge curriculum.
