Academic Success: 2020 Results

A 98% graduating diploma pass rate for the last three years and 99% in 2020.

CDL 2020 Academic Results

Our students are confident, enthusiastic learners and year on year, their exam results exceed global averages.

We recognise that each child is unique and have, therefore, built a student-centric approach to learning which can be adapted to every individual’s needs.

Our broad range of language programmes (English, French and Bilingual), choice of diplomas (IB DP and CP, High School with Advance Placements, French Bac and Swiss Maturity), international and national curricula, and 100+ extracurricular activities mean that we can offer a tailored learning journey to best fit each student.

We go beyond traditional education with our enriched curriculum and our collaborations with MITThe Julliard School, and UNICEF, provide active input to our curricula and student learning.

We recruit and retain world-class teachers, providing them with continuous training within the school and through Nord Anglia Education.  Our talented teachers get to know the precise needs of each student and tailor their teaching approach, developing personalised learning plans for every child.

We congratulate all the students sitting examinations in 2020 for the excellent results that they have achieved.
