Prep Year 11 excels

Ninety-one per cent of the last school year’s Year 11 class at Cayman Prep and High School scored top passes in at least five examinations at the IGCSE level, according to a press release from the school.

The exam results at Cayman Prep and High School have been improving every year for the past four years, especially at the higher grade (A*-C) passes.

The 2008-9 Year 11 students have achieved the best results in the school’s history, with 91 per cent gaining five or more A* to C passes in IGCSE subjects, and 16 students gaining 10 or more A*to C passes.

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is an international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds.

Principal Sheila Purdom was enthusiastic about the results. ‘We are all delighted with the outstanding achievement of our Year 11 students.

‘They have responded to Cayman Prep’s stimulating learning environment and have become creative, confident, lifelong learners who are a credit to the school and to their families. We send our warmest congratulations to all of them.’
