By the time students have finished their dual-language Primary education within the school they will have reached high literacy levels in both English and Vietnamese. The Secondary school can accept students of any nationality who have an appropriate standard of English and will prepare them for International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations and the International A Levels, recognised for its academic rigor by universities worldwide.

Key Stage 3

The curriculum and teaching at Key Stage 3 reflects the fact that these are the first three years of Secondary school. All subjects are taught by subject specialist teachers and a more mature and analytical approach is expected. Pupils are encouraged to develop their organisation skills and undertake greater independence in managing their own learning.

English, Mathematics and Science remain as core subjects, with Geography, History, Art and Design, ICT, Physical Education, Music and Drama also as compulsory subjects.

Vietnamese is offered at three levels according to ability and there is a structured programme of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE).

Key Stage 4

At Key Stage 4 students are prepared for International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations, sat towards the end of Year 11. These challenging, externally assessed examinations are designed to cater for a wide range of abilities and offer a broad and balanced curriculum through a wide range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, ICT, History, Geography, Business Studies, Art & Design, Music, and Drama. Personal, Social and Health Education continues to be taught at this time. The examination qualifications are awarded by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).

Key Stage 5 (Sixth Form)

The Cambridge International A Level is a traditional route for students wishing to progress to the world’s major English speaking universities. Cambridge International A Levels typically take two years to complete. Worldwide, thousands of learners use Cambridge International A Levels every year to gain places at leading universities worldwide. Students develop a deep understanding of subject areas, as well as independent learning and constructive thinking skills – abilities which universities value highly.

Cambridge International Examination courses are offered in over 9,000 schools in 160 countries world-wide. Their qualifications are internationally recognised for entrance purposes by all of the world’s major universities.  For example, it is just as easy to get into a US university with International A Levels as it is to enter the UK.

International A Levels, studied in Hanoi at BVIS, really do bridge that gap and open up a wealth of possibilities to the successful and motivated student, whilst keeping families together during this crucial stage of a young person’s life.
