Little Angels International School (hereinafter referred to as “LAIS”) has been approved by Cambridge Assessment International Education to offer its world-class Cambridge Primary programme. 

This approval means that all levels at LAIS from primary through secondary will have the Cambridge programme offered. There are currently four schools in Japan of which the Cambridge programme is approved at all levels.

Cambridge Primary is an international education programme taught in more than 1300 primary schools in over 110 countries around the world. It is typically for learners aged 5 to 11 years with five main subjects taught including English, mathematics, science, ICT and Cambridge Global Perspectives in order to develop skills and understanding necessary to become internationally-minded persons.

Assessment tools are built into Cambridge Primary to help teachers identify learners’ strengths and weaknesses and monitor their development as they progress through primary education.

Christine Özden, Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment International Education, said: “We are delighted to announce that Little Angels International School has joined our global community of Cambridge Primary schools and we look forward to a long and productive relationship with them. Cambridge Primary starts learners on an active and creative educational journey, building a solid foundation for later stages of education.”

Ed Gilbreath, the Head of School, has experience with Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Cambridge curriculums. Ed stated “I am pleased that LAIS has implemented the Cambridge curriculum at all levels. The curriculum has been tested and validated by thousands of educators around the world. It is an exemplary curriculum that will prepare our students for the next phase of their education.”
