English examinations


Students throughout the school are entered for a number of different international examinations.


In the Secondary students are entered for Cambridge ESOL examinations, IGCSE examinations and most students also study for the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Success in these examinations has led to an increasing number of Markham students continuing their education after school by entering some of the best universities around the world.
