This is a prestigious award, and is recognized by all schools whose students write the Cambridge examinations every year. In the past 7 years Legae Academy students have been receiving this prestigious award. It is on record that more than 10,000 schools in 170 countries enter students for the Cambridge examinations each year, so it is an incredible achievement to win a Cambridge Top in the World Award.

 The students mentioned above show Legae's efforts in providing quality education are not in vain. As early as 1998 the Ministry of Education inspection report of the institution noted: "The school is well poised for efficiency and productivity. The available management structures enable communication and consultation which creates a suitable working environment. The general up-keep of the school also creates a conducive learning environment which is imperative to school of this nature." Ithas been eighteen years since the inception report was issued, and Legae Academy has not disappointed the officers who issued that report.

All the achievements are possible due to the schools' commitment to excellence. Such achievements provide evidence of Legae in fostering whole-person development, enhancing life-long learning capabilities and more importantly, nurturing positive values and attitudes towards life and society among students. Students of Legae are able to obtain all-round development in various domains according to their own attributes. The Top in the World Awards fully demonstrate how our students have benefited from striking a balance between archiving academic excellence and develping personal aspirations along the learning journey.

About Legae Academy Botswana

Legae’s tradition of success in external examinations has  been further recognised by the MOE, which commended the  school “for its high performance in both IGCSE and HIGCSE  examinations”. The ministry of Education further noted that:  “This good performance is attributed to a number of factors  such as highly qualified staff, small class size, reasonable  teaching loads, good and adequate physical facilities  and resources, and a conducive teaching and learning  environment. The highly qualified teachers of the school are  optimally utilised.” (1998 Inspection Report)  “Legae Academy is focused on students achieving academic  excellence and has a good organisation structure in place to  enable the school to deliver its objective. Inspection findings  revealed that the school has many strengths, particularly in  producing good grades at final exams.”
