SAI International School is successfully associated with Cambridge since the last nine years through various programmes. The School is one among the eleven Cambridge Assessment Admissions Centre of India. Students desirous to pursue their education after Class XII in the prestigious Universities like Cambridge, Oxford, Warwick and the Imperial College, London are registered in the Centre and take the global entrance test which happens at the same time across the world. Last year 27 students from across the country appeared for the test in the Centre at SAI.
Cambridge English Language Assessment (CELA) is an annual program of the School since the year 2009 in which the students get an opportunity to appear for a Cambridge University examination in English meant for speakers of other languages across the world. Every year hundreds of students register for these examinations, who are thoroughly trained through 20 preparatory classes. These tests assess all four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking which helps to provide a comprehensive picture of the learner’s overall level of English not only to secure a bright future but also meet the global standards. Students from Classes II to XII are eligible to take part in the assessment test and receive certificates from the University of Cambridge.
SAI International School in association with the Cambridge University Press, UK has initiated ‘SAI-Cambridge Reading Quest’ a reading and language enhancement program in 2018 to develop the listening, speaking, reading and writing skills of the students. It is a library activity that allows every student to read at least five books in a month and write a book review after reading each of the books. At the end, a workshop is conducted where students are engaged in several activities like vocabulary games, book review writing, creative craft, comprehension and story writing, reading and listening of texts, character sketch etc to develop their language skills. The program is open to students from Class I to IX divided into various groups. More than 300 students participated in the programme last academic session.
