Cambridge Schools In Zimbabwe

The Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) curriculum was scrapped and replaced by Zimsec exams in 2002 in Zimbabwe. However, there are a number of Cambridge schools in Zimbabwe and we will list them here for you.

CIE is part of the Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge, well-known and trusted for excellence in education. CIE qualifications are internationally recognised. Every year thousands of learners use CIE qualifications to gain places at universities around the world, to enter other tertiary institutions or to gain employment.

CIE syllabi are reviewed and updated regularly so that they reflect the latest thinking of international experts and practitioners and take account of the different national contexts in which they are taught.

All CIE programmes and qualifications are designed to support learners in becoming:

  • confident in working with information and ideas – their own and those of others
  • responsible for themselves, responsive to and respectful of others
  • reflective as learners, developing their ability to learn
  • Innovative and equipped for new and future challenges
  • engaged intellectually and socially, ready to make a difference

The Cambridge curriculum offers a variety of routes for learners with a wide range of abilities, including those whose first language is not English. 

This post covers a lot of schools and we have broken them down into pages to make it easy for you to go through them.

The Cambridge schools are listed in alphabetical order. Simply click on the next page to see the next list of schools.
