London Academy Casablanca provides a full schooling programme for pupils from 3 to 18 years old. The curriculum at LAC is based upon the programmes of the University of Cambridge International group, starting with Cambridge Primary and moving through Lower Secondary. The integrated international programmes ensure a smooth transition through the years of schooling and provide the opportunity for students to succeed in a stimulating, externally validated and highly respected world-class educational programme.
Ultimately, the qualifications which can be obtained by our senior students can open the doors to universities all over the world. Although we use the Cambridge and the National Curriculum for Morocco, we are a truly international school and proud to be so!
The Cambridge and National Curriculum programmes provide statements of content, knowledge, skills and understanding, and attainment target levels for all the subjects we teach. We believe that academic subjects are only half of the story.
We believe we excel in putting the child and his or her needs and situation first. So not only do we recognise that each child is individual, but also that every day is different and each provides another opportunity for success and happiness.
Five elements lie at the heart of a Cambridge education: international curriculum, teaching and learning, assessment, international recognition and global community.
We offer a wide range of subjects and give schools flexibility in how to offer them. We support schools in developing a curriculum that suits their context, culture and ethos, and that they can tailor to their students’ needs.
We provide professional development for teachers, to help them improve their performance and practice throughout their careers. We encourage teaching practices that develop the ability of students to reflect on their learning.
We design our assessments to be fair, valid, reliable and practicable. We assess what we know to be of value: deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding, and higher level thinking skills. Our flexible assessment structure maximises time for teaching and learning.
Our qualifications are widely recognised by universities and employers. Cambridge students can be confident that their qualifications will be understood and valued throughout their education and career, in their home country and internationally.
Cambridge schools belong to a worldwide education community. We support professional learning communities which connect teachers around the world so that can share views, information and resources, and learn from one another.
