Curriculum

Building on the National Curriculum of England and Wales, we offer Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) IGCSE and A-Level exams. All classroom instruction is delivered in English.

In addition to this, English, Mathematics, and Science are reinforced by the implementation of the SABIS® system. This thorough assessment enables our teachers to provide accurate feedback on student progress and develop targeted teaching strategies.

IGCSE

Year 10 and 11 pupils (aged 14-16) prepare for their International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) exams. Pupils will study core subjects—Mathematics, English (both Language and Literature), History, and Science (a minimum of Biology with options for both Chemistry and Physics)—in addition to individual subject choices in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Modern Languages.

The subjects currently available at IGCSE:

  • English (Language [1st and 2nd]/Literature)
  • Maths
  • Biology
  • History
  • Chemistry/Economics/Global Perspectives
  • Business/ICT
  • Physics/Geography
  • Arabic/Turkish/French/German

All students continue with their programme of Physical Education throughout KS 4 and 5.

Students sit their selection of exams at the end of Year 11 before continuing on to A-Level.

AS and A Level

For their final two years of study, students (aged 16-18) continue their work from IGCSE subjects for their Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and Advanced (A) Level studies, Year 12 and 13 respectively. Students are encouraged to develop a personal sense of responsibility and self-discipline through completion of research and independent study, to this end students’ timetables include study periods for research.

Students are required to choose four subjects for AS in Year 12 from the list below. Our KS5 offers individual support to students as they choose their subjects, especially regarding university admissions requirements.
