Cambridge IGCSE is widely recognised by higher education institutions and employers around the world as evidence of academic achievement.

Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. The programme is more rigorous than the standard GCSE’s and broadens opportunities for students who wish to further their education either domestically or internationally. Assessment takes place at the end of the course and includes written, oral, practical assessment and coursework.

Grades are benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades, A* to G, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement for each grade.

The St. Louis School is the only International High School offering a full IGCSE programme in Milan.


Year 10 and 11


A wide range of IGCSE subjects are available at the St. Louis School and these are grouped into five curriculum areas. IGCSE students study five compulsory subjects, at least one science and other electives. Students in Years 10 and 11 are encouraged to take part in the school sports programme and international programmes such as the Global Maths Challenge, the Model United Nations, the World Global Challenge, Duke of Edinburgh International Award and educational trips abroad. Computer Science Technology and an inbuilt pastoral programme are an integral part of our Key Stage 4 curriculum.
