About the Cambridge Pathway

The Cambridge Pathway is delivered in over 10,000 schools in 160 countries around the world. It is a global curriculum designed to prepare students for life – helping them to develop an informed curiosity and lasting passion for learning. And now it’s available to you online with the support of Gaia educators so you can have a first class education wherever you are and even if you are homeschooling.

Our courses stretch, challenge and inspire students of all abilities and our educators are here to help you to support your children with our materials every step of the way.

Students develop deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding and higher order thinking skills.

Our mission is equipping parents, teachers and communities with the resources to engage young learners and ensure a solid foundation to their education and a lifelong love of learning for all.

What will students learn?

Your child will think scientifically and develop practical skills alongside knowledge and understanding, which is vital for explaining the world around us. Improving learners’ awareness of science in the world around them develops their sense that ‘science is for me', helping to connect themselves to the subject.

This approach provides them with the knowledge and skills they require to excel at science in later stages of education and to make informed choices, including considering sustainability issues and meeting the challenges facing our environment.

How is the programme taught?

This curriculum covers six main areas called ‘strands’ that work together so that you can teach science holistically:

  • Biology – living things and how they interact.
  • Chemistry – the study of matter.
  • Physics – the interaction of matter and energy.
  • Earth and Space – planet Earth, the wider Solar System and beyond.
  • Thinking and Working Scientifically – develops understanding and skills of scientific models and representations, scientific enquiry and practical work.
  • Science in Context – helps teachers demonstrate the relevance of science to learners and unique to our science curriculum.

 

Personalised resources included with this course:

With this course, students will be provided individual and customised access to a range of subscriptions and course books in digital format including Britannica School.  These are included with our courses and offer substantial savings over individual subscriptions.
