Cambridge Lower Secondary

Also called ‘Middle School’, the grades six to eight lay the foundation to be successful in the Cambridge IGCSE program. 

SRIS Middle School

Cambridge Lower Secondary is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. It helps you prepare students for the next step of their education, providing a clear path as they progress through the Cambridge Pathway in an age-appropriate way.

“Next to Math we focus on giving our students a solid understanding of the sciences, which they need as a basis to succeed in the more challenging IGCSE subjects, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.”

Staying informed

SRIS Edupage Information System (SEIS)

At Silk Road International School we use our SRIS Edupage information system (SEIS) to document all our activities. Using SEIS parents receive up to date information their child’s grades and timetable. SEIS shows you the curriculum for the whole year and the class register shows you exactly what was taught in each lesson.

The SEIS message system helps you stay in touch with your child’s teachers and informs you about achievements as well as issues that need to be discussed and worked on.

Language Support

Many children have not reached English proficiency during their first years at an English language school. Our multilingual ESL teachers make sure they improve their English skills quickly. Additionally the children naturally acquire the language in subjects like Math and Science, simply because they are interested in the discussed topics.


SRIS Health Center

School Doctor

The SRIS school doctor performs several health related tasks to keep the Silk Road International School a healthy environment. She monitors the health of both our students and teachers and initiates intervention, if neccessary.

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)

Captivationg Lessons

While Silk Road students have at least five english classes per week, these English lessons are not the only time they learn English.

We observe that a lot of progress is made when students are not even aware that they are learning English. Students are eager to learn more about the world. So when they learn about – BOOKS.

e.g. the science activity book (workbook) used for practices and homework, does not only reinforce the acquired knowledge in science, but enforces the students to use the right key terms in English and provides answer schemes to actively have them practice to express what the learned in English.

Especially in lower grades it helps students to activley use English as a language to express thoughts and ideas.

Science experiment let them experience the world around them in a very interesting way and build up experiences and fine motor skills.
