Primary schools

Primary schools in Zambia cover grades one to seven. The main types of primary education in Zambia are international, private, Government and community schools. International schools like British international schools and other international primary schools use internationally recognised curricula leading eventually to secondary school qualifications such as IGCSE, GCE and the International Baccalaureate (IB). These Zambian primary schools usually command the highest fees and offer and the best facilities for science, sports and IT. Most private, Government and community primary schools follow a Zambian curriculum with private primary schools demanding the higher fees in this group. Government primary schools provide basic primary education covering the whole of Zambia. Community primary schools are supported by individuals, businesses, farms and/or churches in the local area. Primary schools across the country may cater for day scholars and those looking for primary boarding schools in Zambia. International, private and community primary schools tend to take in children from the age of five whilst Government school education usually begins at age seven. For services for younger children try Zambia pre schools. Government basic schools teach grades one to nine, of which grade eight and nine fall in the Zambia secondary school category.
