Secondary School

We all share high aspirations for our students: aspirations that become more clearly defined and increasingly shaped by students themselves as they progress through the Secondary School and approach higher education.

At the heart of our work is helping our students develop and accomplish their aspirations. Our world class education offering embraces the very best teaching and learning philosophies.

Robust academic results are essential to success beyond The British College of Brazil, and our academic programme provides students with every opportunity to excel and reach their university of choice. Success in life, however, requires much more than good grades. It requires confidence, independence, presence, the ability to lead and the discipline to apply oneself. Our commitment to helping students develop these attributes is enshrined in our School Charter and relies on a rich and varied educational programme developed over many years.

Key Stage 3

In Key Stage 3, lessons are taught by a series of subject specialists with the class tutor having the important pastoral role of coordinating all aspects of the pupils’ academic and social development. The class tutor will normally also deliver the PSHE programme, which includes global citizenship and health education. 

Specialist teachers deliver a balanced programme based on the English National Curriculum. Students study English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Drama, Art, Computing, Music and PE. In addition, students choose to study at least one Modern Foreign Language. 

Key Stage 4 

In Years 10 and 11, students are able to choose subjects from a broad range of options in more depth. Our courses are provided by the UK Cambridge University International Examinations Board (CIE) and UK EdExcel Examinations Board. This two year programme is globally recognised to be one of the best academically rigorous programmes for this age range of students and enables pupils to gain formally recognised IGCSE qualifications as a result.

Subject Enrichment

Opportunities and activities beyond the classroom form an important and exciting feature of school life at The British College of Brazil. The enrichment programme contributes enormously to the academic, cultural, physical, spiritual and social life that all students experience during their time at at our school. 

All students in Secondary School are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of clubs and to learn new skills. From performing arts to public speaking, chess to gymnastics: there is something for everyone.
