Why the Cambridge International Curriculum at RWIS?

A flexible structure

The Cambridge curriculum is internationally based, however, there is a high degree of flexibility built into it, allowing our educators to adjust it for local relevancy. We utilise the Cambridge curriculum to provide our students with the benefits of the Cambridge structure within the context of our local communities here in Palma and Spain.


Individual and inclusive

Although the Cambridge curriculum is known for its structured and challenged approach, it places a great deal of emphasis on individualised and inclusive teaching. There is room for modifications and support in all aspects of the curriculum and support is available for students who may face specific challenges. Students are encouraged to explore what interests them, while also ensuring they develop the skills and knowledge necessary for future success.


Learning checkpoints and assessments

The Cambridge approach to assessment is based on accurately measuring a student’s potential and progress to make informed decisions about their educational needs. Cambridge checkpoints and assessments allow for flexibility and support in their administration to accommodate all students. By accurately measuring a student’s current knowledge and abilities, we can more effectively support their ongoing learning in a way that is best suited to them.


Preparing for the future

The Cambridge curriculum prepares students to succeed in Life, as well as in school – this is the Raoul Wallenberg philosophy of education.. With a focus on developing critical thinking skills and a lasting passion for learning, students are better prepared for the next step in their education.Our Raoul Wallenberg school holistic ethos, with a focus on individual excellence and developing good character within a caring and respectful learning environment, remains our foundational value, complemented by the structure of the Cambridge curriculum. We wholeheartedly believe this approach encapsulates the best option to prepare our students to be confident, curious, socially responsible adults with a lifetime of success and opportunity. Our adopted motto is “Education for Life.”

How this looks for our opening year beginning September 2024
