Cambridge Top in the World Results 2015

I am pleased to announce that we have received the details of the winning candidates who sat Cambridge Advanced level examinations in South Africa in the June and November series of 2015. On behalf of Cambridge International Examinations and Mountain Cambridge School, may I extend congratulations to the winners, their schools and teachers.  A special congratulations to one of our students Biance Lombard who received a High Achievement award, she gained the highest mark in South Africa for AS Computing. Congratulations Biance! All your hard work and determination has paid off – Carolina van Heerden, Principal

We wish to congratulate the learners and their teachers on their excellent external Cambridge International Results. In November 2015, these students wrote an external internationally recognised examination; these papers are set up and marked at the University of Cambridge. This is a true international benchmarking.

We are certainly proud of the academic stars but it is important that we reflect on each learner’s achievement. They all embraced the classroom and its demands and, together with their teachers, they nurtured and extended their individual abilities. Well done!
