Students enter the Secondary School in Year 7 at 11+ years old. Building on the strong foundation of the Primary School programme, students in the Secondary School begin to refine their skills for future success. The framework for the Year 7-9 programme is UK National Curriculum. Year 10 and 11 students follow the IGCSE / UK National Curriculum programme. These frameworks ensure that students harness their full potential and effectively apply knowledge, skills and abilities to each and every subject area. The curriculum is based on international best practices where communication skills, confidence building and understanding of the global environment and its challenges are emphasised.
Further information about IGCSE subjects is shared by school leaders at appropriate times through the school year. Students and Parents are provided with the opportunities to discuss the options and choices available to them individually and in good time.
