Primary

At our Primary Department, preparing students for a variety of High School Cambridge examinations is always at the forefront of our minds. Throughout the Primary school years, sustained emphasis is placed on breadth and balance between the CAMBRIDGE CHECKPOINT CURRICULAR and other activities, ensuring that children enjoy their learning, whilst being mindful of the necessity to prepare themselves for the important High school Cambridge exams they take in Year 11, 12 & 13 if needed. 

Children will leave PCS Primary Department as happy and confident individuals, with the skills required to be independent learners, well-prepared for their next stage in learning.
