Crawford International School I.G.C.S.E. Students Celebrate Cambridge Results

The inaugural class at the recently established Crawford International School Kenya delivered an exceptional performance in their first IGCSE exams administered by the University of Cambridge.

IGCSE stands for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education. It is a two-year programme leading to externally set, marked and certificated examinations from the University of Cambridge, whose curriculum is followed by Crawford. Any student who takes an IGCSE subject will be gaining a qualification that is recognised globally.

“We are blown away by the performance of our students, and congratulate them on their hard work and success,” says Jenny Coetzee, Managing Director at Crawford International School.

“As we celebrate our second year since opening next month, we are delighted that our standards of academic excellence have now been independently confirmed by this august institution,” she says.

Learning continued online at Crawford during the curfew, and although students were not able to sit for their IGCSEs in June, Cambridge accepted the predicted results submitted by the school. Two students got full house A’s with one achieving seven A* – meaning performance over 90 percent.

Coetzee says 11 students sat the exam, and all of them came to Crawford from different schools across Nairobi and some were from the 8-4-4 system. On average, 3.5 A’s were achieved per student. 93 percent of all results fell within the A*-C bracket and 60 percent between A*-B bracket.

Crawford International School Kenya is a brand of Africa’s leading private education provider, JSE-listed ADvTECH. Enrolments at the school have been steadily climbing since it opened its doors in September 2018, and even continued during curfew as a result of its excellent online offering.

The school’s curriculum is based on a progressive educational approach which prepares children for the 21st century allows for development of the global competencies required of this century’s students. These include global citizenship, communication skills, entrepreneurial thinking skills, collaboration, and environmental awareness.

“We could not be more proud of our students and their educators, who performed despite the challenges faced in the past few months. We also sincerely thank our parents who supported the school steadfastly through this stressful period,” says Coetzee.

“And we proceed with confidence into the future, knowing that they have pioneered the way for our future students.”
