At Brainfield Academy, we use the Cambridge academic structure which ensures a robust and well-rounded learning journey. Our Nursery School is a fun and nurturing environment that introduces children to the basics of education. Our Primary school covers grades 1-6 and includes subjects such as Maths, English, French, Coding, and much more. Secondary school is from form 1-5 and at form 4, students have the opportunity to choose either the Arts, Science or Commercial stream. At form 5, students sit for the IGCSE, AS Level at form 6 and A Levels at form 7 in readiness for the world ahead of them.

This type of exam is the main requirement for entrance into most universities in the Gambia and other countries. Students will be expected to demonstrate a high level of knowledge and understanding in their chosen subjects, as well as the ability to think critically and apply their knowledge. They may also need to develop key study skills to ensure success in their examinations. In addition, students will need to be able to manage their time effectively in order to balance their studies with their other commitments. With the right preparation, students can ensure their success in their A Level exams and subsequently in their higher education studies.
