Teaching and learning
Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards are a group of awards issued by Cambridge International Examinations. They recognise exceptional learner achievement in Cambridge examinations around the world. The primary purpose of these awards is to celebrate and recognise the success of high-performing Cambridge learners.
All Cambridge International Examinations students are eligible for our prestigious ‘Top in the World’ award. In those countries where Cambridge examinations are taken by more students a wider range of awards are available, including ‘Top in Country’, ‘Best Across’ and ‘High Achievement’.
We have prepared awards support items for you to download. These documents will assist you in co-ordinating and hosting your own school awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of your students.
