Welcome to High School
High School (Years 10 and 11), students are prepared for external examinations in the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education), which take place at the end of Year 11. All students sit for examinations in the English Language and Mathematics, They are also required to choose Double Science (equivalent to two IGCSE qualifications encompassing all three sciences). All students follow a non-examined component in French, Arabic, and Humanities. Key Stage 4 is a significant and influential stage of a student’s academic journey as students begin to make personal choices about the subjects they wish to study in the Diploma Programme (DP). Students learn to become more independent and start to develop a clearer defined sense of direction for the future. Information and guidance options and careers becomes a key focus both academically and pastorally. Subject teachers encourage the student to explore and discuss the choices and opportunities open to them, whilst taking into consideration their personal strengths and ambitions.
