Junior College Academics

Foundation Phase

Foundation Phase is an introduction to formal learning and at Ashton we believe in making it an exciting experience. Our curriculum from Grade 1 to 3 includes the Cambridge International Curriculum from the University of Cambridge; encourages creative thinking, problem solving and instils a love for art, culture and sport. Foundation Phase students undergo more formal assessments at the end of each term, in English, Mathematics and Life Skills. 

Intersen Phase

In the Intersen Phase, our students are guided to cope with more advanced formal academic work, are equipped with essential study skills and given greater independence.  

From Grade 4 to 6 our students follow the Cambridge International Primary Checkpoint Curriculum. In Grade 6, our students write external Cambridge exams in English, Mathematics and Science. 

In their final year of Junior College (Grade 7) our students follow a combination of the South African National Curriculum and the Cambridge Secondary Curriculum.
