Our school is proud to say that it follows the Cambridge Curriculum in the primary school. All children have the opportunity to study programmes designed and written by the University of Cambridge and all our children take the Cambridge exams at the end of each academic year.
We recognize that in order to get the final rewards of progression tests or checkpoint that a lot of hard work has to be done before they are achieved. To show our appreciation of the work the children are doing we offer Cambridge awards at the end of each term for outstanding performance in the Cambridge programme. The awards go to the best English, Science, mathematics and ICT students in each class. They are prestigious awards and something all our children should be aiming for.
The University of Cambridge has over 100 libraries. The central library alone (the Cambridge University library, or the ‘UL’) has approximately 8 million volumes, and is able to request a free copy of every book published in the UK and Ireland.
One book in the CIS Festivalnaya library that I recommend is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.

A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition.
We have some exciting news on this sunny day!
