A Glimpse Into Student Interests

At CGA, the most popular subjects reflect our students' diverse interests and their eagerness to engage with challenging, enriching content. Here’s a look at the top three:

1. International GCSE Mathematics: Covering a comprehensive range of topics, from number systems to statistics, this subject lays a solid foundation in mathematical concepts.

2. International A Level Mathematics: Focused on deepening mathematical understanding, this course encourages students to enjoy the process of learning, reasoning, and proof construction.

3. iGCSE English Literature: Through classic literary works, students explore rich language and themes, developing a profound appreciation for literature.

Embracing Sustainability in Education

At CGA, we're not just about shaping the future through education; we're also committed to preserving the planet. Here's how we did it:

Saved 13 Pine Trees: Thanks to our paperless assignments our eco-friendly practices led to saving 13 pine trees. It's a small step with a big impact, showing how digital learning can contribute to forest conservation.

Decreased Our Carbon Footprint: By embracing online learning, CGA families collectively saved around 216,667 liters of petrol. This significant reduction in commuting not only saved time but also drastically cut down on emissions, contributing to cleaner air and a healthier environment.

Reduced 1.3 metric tons of textile waste: Let's talk about school uniforms, or rather, the absence of them. By not requiring traditional uniforms, we avoided creating 1.3 metric tons of textile waste. That's equivalent to the weight of a fully grown elephant!
