Secondary School

Our curriculum supports the way teenagers learn. Specifically designed around the needs of the developing adolescent brain, our combination of subjects ensures that we provide challenging, engaging, connected learning that Secondary School students find relevant and inspiring.

The education offered in the Secondary School builds on the students' previous learning and knowledge from their Primary Years. At Key Stage 3, core subjects are taught by a team of subject specialists who are passionate about their area of learning. All subjects follow the English National Curriculum, while core subjects follow a unique blend of the English National Curriculum and the Cambridge International curriculum. The end of KS3 is marked by our Year 9 students taking the Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint examinations for the three core subjects (English First or Second Language, Mathematics, Science). After taking the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint examinations at the end of Year 6, this is their second experience of sitting externally-set examinations under time constraints. The objective is to progressively build their confidence and skills, and train them to perform for the IGCSEs at the end of Year 11.

 

The following subjects are taught at Key Stage 3:

 

English First Language

Arabic First Language

English Second Language

Mathematics

Biology

Chemistry

Physics

Humanities

Modern Foreign Languages (Arabic, French, Hindi)

Art and Design

Performing Arts

The school is proud to be fully accredited by Cambridge International and Oxford International AQA Examinations to offer IGCSEs at Key Stage 4 and International A-Levels at Key Stage 5. Being accredited by two major international examinations board allows our school to select courses that are most appropriate to our student population.

Form Tutors have the important pastoral role of coordinating all aspects of the students' academic and social development. The Form Tutor adopts a holistic approach and discusses themes such as global citizenship and health education. At NAISAK, our expectations of our students are high - all participate in the learning process and each student's contribution to the school is valued.

It is our aim to help prepare students for the adult world and make them more independent and self-aware. Students are introduced to a wide subject content and studies, and are encouraged to learn and think for themselves. Teachers endeavour to give them confidence to join in, ask questions and help others, laying firm foundations for academic success at IGCSE and beyond.

The current academic year marks the launch of the International Award at NAISAK. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a world-wide recognised and celebrated initiative that promotes commitment, development and awareness of one’s responsibilities as a world citizen.
