Dual Curriculum Offering

Reddam House Durbanville offers a dual assessment opportunity for students, including both Cambridge Assessment International and the Independent Examinations Board (IEB). Cambridge Lower Secondary is offered from Grade 7 to Grade 9, after which students can select either the Cambridge IGCSEs and AS Levels or the South African IEB examinations. A Levels are taken as a post matric option and are an elective that students choose to better their prospects of entering South African universities or the opportunity to study abroad at prestigious universities.

The dual offering gives students the opportunity of a win-win choice between two renowned, quality options, both preparing candidates more rigorously for tertiary education requirements, as well as workplace critical thinking and problem-solving expectations.
