Cambridge International Examinations
Global citizens of today, and tomorrow
Cambridge *IGCSE Global Perspectives provides opportunities for enquiry into, and reflection on, key global issues from a personal, local, national and global perspective.
Students explore stimulating topics that have global significance. They assess information critically and explore lines of reasoning. They learn to collaborate with others from another culture, community or country, directing much of their own learning and developing an independence of thought.
Cambridge IGCSE Global Perspectives encourages awareness of global problems and offers opportunities to explore possible solutions through cooperation and collaboration. The course is not about getting everybody to think identically; rather it is a matter of opening minds to the great complexities of the world and of human thought, and opening hearts to the diversity of human experience and feeling.
As part of the Jamieson Programme, students participate in the international Cambridge courses:
- Year 9: (IGSCE) Global Perspectives – providing opportunities for enquiry into, and reflection on, key global issues from a personal, local, national and global perspective.
- Year 10: (AS Level) General Paper – an advanced multi-disciplinary course taught by a team of staff, challenging thinking and requiring rigorous academic writing.
What is worth learning – for a good life, in a complex, changing world?
