Cambridge IGCSE

Cambridge ICE is the group award of the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and requires the study of subjects drawn from the five different IGCSE subject groups. It gives schools the opportunity to benefit from offering a broad and balanced curriculum by recognising the achievements of students who pass examinations in at least seven subjects, including two languages, and one subject from each of the other subject groups.

At Key Stage 4, students at Endaze begin to specialise more. English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Science, Spanish Language and Literature, Sociales, Physical education and RE/citizenship continue to be compulsory subjects, and students also choose three additional subjects: Geography, Music, German, Drama, Art&Design, ICT, Economics or History.

In all these subjects (except for Physical education, Sociales and RE/Citizenship) they start a 2 year preparation for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) exams which are taken at the end of Year 11 (May-June). At the end of Year 11, students will choose the subjects which they wish to study for A Level in the Sixth Form.
