Secondary schools

Secondary schools in Zambia teach grades eight to twelve, also known as form one to five. Some secondary schools in Zambia also offer A levels to their students and some are secondary boarding schools. In Zambia there are international, private, Government and community secondary schools. International secondary schools use internationally recognised curricula leading to secondary school qualifications such as IGCSE, GCE and the International Baccalaureate (IB). These secondary education schools usually command the highest fees and offer the best facilities for science, sports and IT. Most private, Government and community secondary schools follow a Zambian curriculum with private schools demanding the higher fees in this group. Government secondary schools provide secondary education for the whole of Zambia. They are often divided into junior secondary schools, for grades eight and nine and upper secondary schools, for grades ten to twelve. Community secondary schools are supported by individuals, businesses, farms and/or churches in the local area. Secondary schools across Zambia may cater for day scholars and offer secondary school boarding facilities. International and private secondary school education tends to take in children from the age of 11 whilst Government and community primary school education usually begins at age 13. Government basic schools teach grades one to nine, of which grade one to seven fall in the Zambia primary school category.
