Students enter the Secondary School in Year 7 at 11+ years old. Building on the strong foundation of the Primary School programme, students in the Secondary School begin to refine their skills for future success. The framework for the Year 7-9 programme is known as Cambridge Secondary 1 (CS1). Year 10 students follow the IGCSE - Cambridge Secondary 2 (CS2)/English National Curriculum programme. These frameworks ensure that students harness their full potential and effectively apply knowledge, skills and abilities to each and every subject area. The curriculum is based on international best practices where communication skills, confidence building and understanding of the global environment and its challenges are emphasised.
