AS PART of the dual curriculum offered by Reddam House Durbanville, IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) is a two-year programme leading to externally set, marked and certificated examinations from the University of Cambridge. Any student who takes an IGCSE subject gains a qualification that is recognised globally. This dual curriculum approach aligns with the global approach to education which the school prides itself on.

“A total of 190 subject distinctions were achieved in the IGCSE June 2021 exams. The outstanding work ethic of this group of Grade 11s is reflected in these results, which will allow them access to study at some of the world's best universities,” says Barry Nieuwoudt, executive head of Reddam House Durbanville.

The following learners achieved an average of 90% or higher:

• Nirvana Reddy achieved a 93% average with an A* (90% and over) in eight subjects and an A (80% to 89%) in one subject

Our students regularly achieve Cambridge student achievement awards, including Top in the World for AS mathematics and English language and literature and numerous Top in South Africa positions in our broad range of Cambridge subjects.
