Secondary Curriculum

Our curriculum up until Year 9 is based on the English National Curriculum. However, we recognise that children transfer to and from very many different school systems and bring with them a varied educational and cultural background. We therefore adapt the Curriculum to meet the needs of our international student body. An addition to the National Curriculum coverage is the inclusion of Slovak for Slovak nationals and Korean for Korean nationals. All students are able to choose to study either French or German as a Modern Foreign Language, Slovak studies for non-Slovak & non-Korean speakers and Spanish. 


International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)

In Years 10 and 11 students study courses from the University of Cambridge in England, known as the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). The IGCSE courses are two-year programmes requiring a considerable amount of in-depth study in each subject. In May and June of Year 11, usually when they are aged 16, the students sit the Cambridge examinations at the school. The completed examination papers are sent back to Cambridge where they are marked. Results are issued in August with final certificates arriving in October. Those students who achieve the required standard are awarded IGCSE diplomas by Cambridge.


International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)

In Years 12 and 13, students embark on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, a two year course of study culminating, if successful, in the gaining of the IB Diploma, awarded in July. This qualification is a passport to further and higher education around the world. For instance, the IB Diploma is welcomed by hundreds of universities worldwide, including the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, New York University, Boston, Yale, and Harvard, where students can gain advanced placement on degree courses.
