The oldest private school in Iceland has become the country’s first Cambridge school. Landakotsskóli, established in 1897, now offers Cambridge IGCSEs to 30 students representing 14 nationalities.
Teacher Laurie Berg said: “Our students love learning with the Cambridge curriculum. In addition, we have already seen improvements in our academic progress tests this year.”
Laurie said that parents were totally behind the introduction of Cambridge programmes, so much so that the majority of the Cambridge fees were paid for through their own fundraising efforts.
She added: “We are immensely proud to be the only school in Iceland to offer Cambridge programmes. We are confident that Cambridge will support our vision of being an empowered and connected global community, where learning is adaptive, continuous and relevant.”
