Exploring the Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme (Key Stage 3) in Kuala Lumpur

The Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme (CLSP) is a Key stage 3 syllabus in the educational progress of Cambridge students. This robust academic system allows students to finish their Grades 7, 8 and 9 through a unique blend of  STEAM subjects, Arts as well as Sports, to provide learners with rich experience in secondary schooling.

CLSP is designed for nurturing proactive and resourceful learners. Through a flexible methodology, which includes subjects such as English, Maths, Science, Social Sciences, Physical Education etc. The curriculum helps students develop their thinking skills and build on their confidence, and it an excellent benchmark for students aspiring to study Cambridge IGCSE in higher grades.


Why choose Cambridge?

The curriculum’s ethos is aimed at encouraging students to take risks, deal with distractions while becoming independent and committed to gaining new information.

Through the programme, every student receives the opportunity to get spiritual, moral, social and cultural education within and beyond the classrooms.

GIIS KL extends the Cambridge curriculum even further in Key stage 3 and improves the students’ interdependence and collaboration to promote a well-rounded development in them.

The Team of CLSP Experts

The teachers at GIIS work towards the overall development of every student and provide them with 100% attention, which encourages them to learn to reflect on their growth, assess their capabilities and weaknesses while developing the confidence to evaluate their skills and academic performance.

Exceptional Academic Results

Students of Grades 6,7 and 9 are assessed through identification of their learning needs and their potential besides the actual output. Each student’s baseline level is identified through their abilities in core academic skills and their aptitude in core skills.

This is interspersed with GIIS’s unique 9GEMS approach to holistic development, which distinguishes us as one of the best Cambridge lower secondary schools in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, with an emphasis on overall development.

Benefits of studying at GIIS

Our award-winning 9GEMS methodology improves the success rate

As the Cambridge curriculum is flexible, we have adapted the Key stage 3 programme’s content to suit the culture and ethos of the international audience, making academic transitions smoother for anyone opting for the Cambridge qualifications. To provide the students with a 360-degree development, we have created an internationally-recognised framework that focuses on improving each student in the nine areas of academics, ethics, physical fitness, leadership, critical thinking, problem-solving, vocation, creativity, and visual arts.

How GIIS contributes to a brighter future

GIIS offers customised and flexible educational routes through our academy, using a combination of varied courses that are thoughtfully designed to complement our versatile collaboration arrangements and highly accommodating learning environment.

Our Key stage 3 Syllabus offers students an excellent opportunity to prepare for Cambridge IGCSE as our age-specific study resources follow the Cambridge Secondary framework. Through the convenience of choosing from a list of ten subjects, we allow the students to control the degree and quality of education that they want to access.

We support our students in developing their knowledge and skills with a special focus on English, Science, and Maths. Since we conduct Cambridge Checkpoint tests at the end of the programme, GIIS KL is also able to measure student progress over time. 

The knowledge they acquire at our SMART Campus equips students for a world well beyond the school, making them ready for the next phase of life

Assessments and results

Every assessment is designed to help both teachers and students to assess the students’ learning as they progress, know where they are in their academic journey, and recognise the gaps in their knowledge so that they can support them in the areas they need guidance in.

The Cambridge checkpoint tests are globally recognised as fair and valid assessments of student progress. To further assist it, we have reduced our teacher to student ratio, so our CLSP experts can offer better counsel to each student. The students additionally enjoy a well-equipped library, Learning Commons and other similar collaborative spaces to gain more insights from peers.

Data Analytics at GIIS

GIIS has a unique methodology to check the academic and non-academic progress of our students. We have devised methods and installed platforms which give us raw data on students’ performances inside and outside the classroom.Data Analytics in academics at GIIS is called the 7S method, in which teachers and coordinators gather stats on a student’s marks in seven different areas of development. This includes school, segment, section, subject, subject-teacher, student and summary. The data is then studied by the teacher to determine progress of the student in all areas of development, and an assessment is done which helps students understand their strengths and weaknesses.
