Cambridge provides learners with the foundation to achieve high

levels of academic and personal learning in an engaging way.

Together with schools, we aim to develop learners who are:

• 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, and

ready to make a difference

A Learner-Centered approach
