Secondary School Curriculum
Key Stages 3 and 4
In Key Stage 3 and 4, Years 7 -11 (ages 11-16 – Secondary School), students follow the National Curriculum from England with class teachers tailoring their subjects to take into account the pupil population and the local environment. The Curriculum is designed so that pupils are allowed to develop skills and knowledge in a wide range of subject areas. The school sets itself high academic standards and has a strong commitment to the delivery of a broad, differentiated and balanced curriculum.
In KS4, students study for their IGCSE qualifications in the following subjects: English Literature, English Language or English as a Second Language, Mathematics, Science (Double Award), History and Geography. The IGCSEs are a two year course across Years 10 and 11. Students normally take these qualifications between the ages of 14-16. There are exceptions to this sometimes, when students have been placed in a different year group, due to their English skills. The school currently only offers the IGCSE qualifications, however as we continue to expand, we will be looking at offering the pre-university A Level qualifications, which are studied between the ages of 16-18 and are a requirement of many universities. At present, the school is unable to offer A Level qualifications.Subjects
