Key Stage 3
The Key Stage 3 programme runs from Year 7 to Year 9. The academic programme is based on the English National Curriculum but is not bound by its constraints. Instead, we apply the most appropriate elements and enhance the curriculum where necessary to provide an innovative, challenging and creative programme that is crucial in laying the foundation of core knowledge, skills and understanding required to embark on the Key Stage 4 IGCSE programme. Lessons and materials are adapted to our international and local context.
Students study English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Drama, Art, ICT, Graphic Design and PE. In addition, students choose to study two Modern Foreign Languages from a choice of three.
Key Stage 4
In Years 10 and 11 students at BSKL work towards obtaining IGCSE qualifications offered by the Cambridge and Edexcel examination boards. The two-year IGCSE programme is academically rigorous and recognised to be amongst the best in the world for this age range of students. Many of the subjects have specific international elements and content developed by subject specialists to make the topics relevant to students worldwide.
