What sets Cambridge apart?

Cambridge schools receive comprehensive support to continually develop and maintain high standards. Our tutors have access to resources to use with their students, including exam preparation materials. Students can move between Cambridge schools with little interruption. We have many students joining us part way through their studies. They are easily able to pick up with us and continue.

from our Alumni

“On the soccer field I am doing very well, the coaches are happy with my performances and I am the first choice Keeper. I have even had a nomination for defensive player of the week in our conference. I am scoring in the upper 80’s in academics, but that is only because Cambridge has helped me a lot!”

Miguel Hof – New York, USA

“I am happy to let you know that I got 98% on my first Maths test. I am currently the second highest in all Pre-Degree Students. All thanks to you, Mr Bailey, and Cambridge. I would also like to express my gratitude to you, your teachers and your school. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your time. Thank you for being genuine. Thank you for explaining things until I understood (That’s Mr Bailey). Thank you for being my teachers. I learned that with hard work, honesty, respect, discipline, trust, and enthusiasm you can do anything and be anything you desire to be. You have changed my whole aspect on my learning, I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of you, and that’s Midrand Graduate Institute ( where I’m currently doing their Pre- Degree, I will be studying Biomedicine next year). I even use mind maps, tree maps, and etc when I study. I am what I am today because of you all and whenever my lecturers ask about my high school, I proudly say “Mountain Cambridge School”. Because of you all, I am real world ready”

“I am pleased to send this message to you to update you and express my gratitude towards all the staff members that where part of my journey at MCS. I have followed my childhood dream of becoming a Commercial Pilot and joined as a Student Pilot at Loutzavia flight academy at Wonderboom airport in November 2015. I currently have an 85% average for my theoretical exams for this year and my training is progressing well. I received news recently that shows the value of doing the Cambridge curriculum, because of my first language AS English CIE certificate I was not required to write any English exam at the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). But undoubtedly MCS and the Cambridge system helped me immensely to have discipline in my studies and giving me tools for effective learning. It simply feels foreign to me that just yesterday I was part of the very first LSL group of the MCS High School and how time went by so quickly. I could write pages and pages similar to my Business case studies (Sorry Mrs Crothall) of my experiences over the years at MCS. However to sum it all up I would just say thank you! Thank you for the encouragement and the patience. Thank you to all the MCS students of 2013 for giving me the opportunity to be one of their Prefects for 2014; Thanks to you and Mrs Human hard work in bringing the Cambridge curriculum to a small North West town and building an award-winning school that I am always proud to say, “I am from Mountain Cambridge School””

Louis Minnaar - Wonderboom

“You always told us to pursue our goals in life, which is exactly what I’ve been doing. I can’t believe how time has gone by, since then I moved to Australia. At the end the year I applied for a degree in Creative design which is a 3 year course at Queensland University of Technology, and about a week ago I got my results and I was offered a full time position there – you can only imagine my excitement. Hope you are keeping well Mrs van Heerden, thank you for pushing us to do our best, even if at the time we couldn’t see it; all the stress, the tears, the hard work , it surely paid off.”
