Cambridge Lower Secondary at JIS

Cambridge Lower Secondary develops skills and understanding in English, Mathematics and Science for the first three years of secondary education.( Years 7, 8 and 9) It combines a world-class curriculum and integrated assessment.

Our curriculum frameworks for English will be the ‘English as a second language’ option.

A Foundation for Progression 

Cambridge Lower Secondary provides excellent preparation for Cambridge Upper Secondary and other educational programmes. Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint tests can be used to monitor students’ readiness for the next stage of education.

External benchmark 

Cambridge Lower Secondary includes two testing options: Cambridge Lower Secondary Progression Tests and Cambridge Lower Secondary Checkpoint. These assessments provide an international benchmark of student achievement, helping teachers to identify students’ strengths and weaknesses and give advice on progression routes.


International curriculum 

Appropriate and relevant internationally, Cambridge Lower Secondary has been designed to be culturally sensitive to Vietnam. It includes top-quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching in the JIS environment and philosophy.


Schools can use Cambridge Lower Secondary with other curricula. No part of the programme is compulsory, so teachers can use the materials to suit their own situation and we will combine with our own JIS curriculum..
