Currently, there are 218 pupils on roll of whom 31 are in the Early Years Foundation Stage who are all in receipt of government funding Thirty four pupils are identified as gifted and talented. There are 41 pupils on roll with special educational needs of whom nine have a statement.

The students, parents and staff at the Cambridge International School are celebrating an amazing suite of GCSE results.  The students at the non-selective school have achieved an amazing set of grades.

54% of grades A/A* and 88% of all grades  A*-C

The school has 23 nationalities represented in the student community, many of whom have English as a second language, which makes these results even more amazing.  The school takes a combination of International GCSE and GCSEs, so for this year all grades are still in the A* - E grades rather than the new 9-1 system that is being talked about in the press.

80% of students received five A* - C grades including maths and English

98% of Students received at least two Science grades of C or above

98% of Students received A* - C in Maths 

The Senior site of the Independent International School is based at Abington and takes students up to Year 11.  The leavers are now progressing onto different Sixth Forms in the local Cambridge Community, including Hills Road and The Stephen Perse Foundation. 

Mrs Pippa Mills, Principle, commented “I’m delighted and proud of what the students have achieved.  They are the culmination of a lot of hard work from both students and staff.  Congratulations to everyone.”

“Perfect school for international families”
My three daughters go to CIS. My oldest one (now in year 4) started when she was in Year 1 and has been very happy ever since. My other two daughters have also enjoyed their time at CIS since nursery. CIS is the perfect school for international families.

This is an exceptional school with a strong ethos of accepting and celebrating different cultures and diversity, and promoting tolerance and acceptance of each individual.
