We are Slovenia's only Cambridge International School (CIE is part of the University of Cambridge Assessment group and has centres in more than 150 countries) to offer IGCSE examinations in a range of subjects (details). Slovenian students additionally study Slovene at a native speaker level similar to the curriculum in Slovenian state schools. Other students study Slovene as an additional language.
Students who are not based in Ljubljana have the option to enrol on a private basis at the Dijaški dom Bežigrad, which is a boarding house very close to the school.
Middle School students require a Windows laptop (not Apple or tablet) computer for their studies.
The Middle School curriculum is designed to include a balance of up to ten examination subjects, with IGCSE examinations at the end of Year 10 (one or two subjects) and 11 (the remainder). The syllabus for each subject is available on CIE's website, www.cie.org.uk as follows:
Additional non-examined subjects:
- ICT (Information and Communications Technology)(1 x 45-minute session per week)
- PE (Physical Education)(2 x 90-minute sessions per week)
- Citizenship (1 x 45-minute session per week)
- Slovene (with separate sets for native and non-native speakers)
Most subjects consist of two or three examination papers. Music and Art also include coursework and Maths has coursework option, which we recommend for some students.
All Middle School subjects are blocked for three 45-minute lessons per week (other than where shown above).

The Middle School curriculum is being reviewed during the 2012-13 academic year to consider whether we should introduce a greater element of choice and fewer subjects for the academic year 2013-14.
