Cambridge Secondary One (Y7-Y9)

Han Academy also offers Cambridge's 'English as a second language' option.


Key Features

A foundation for progression

Cambridge Secondary 1 provides excellent preparation for Cambridge Secondary 2 and other educational programmes. Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint tests can be used to monitor learners’ readiness for the next stage of education.


External benchmark

Cambridge Secondary 1 includes two testing options: Cambridge Secondary 1 Progression Tests and Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint. These assessments provide an international benchmark of student achievement, allowing us to identify learners’ strengths and weaknesses and give advice on progression routes.


International curriculum

Appropriate and relevant internationally, Cambridge Secondary 1 has been designed to be culturally sensitive. It includes top-quality teaching and assessment resources appropriate for teaching and learning in local and international schools.



The flexibility of Cambridge Secondary 1 allows us to combine the curriculum with our school's own curriculum. No part of the programme is compulsory, so our school can use the materials to suit our own situation.
