The school is divided into five Key Stages inline with a typical UK structure:
The school follows a broad and adapted British National Curriculum throughout the school (and five key stages) that reflects local context. Pupils in Key Stage 1 follow a curriculum that to reflect the importance of learning through play and to ensure pupils are ready to learn independently and with each other. Whilst we promote the importance of independence, each class benefit from a fully qualified teacher and two teaching assistants.
Pupils in Key Stage 2 benefit from a greater number of specialized lessons in preparation for secondary school and all classes benefit from one teaching assistant. Pupils moving to Key Stage 3 again follow an adapted National Curriculum building on their Key Stage 2 experience and in preparation for selecting their GCSE (General Certificates of Secondary Education) / IGCSE (International General Certificates of Secondary Education) subjects for study in Key Stage 4. Pupils in accelerated classes may take the IGCSEs one or more years earlier in either Key Stage 4 or in exceptional cases in Key Stage 3. In the Sixth Form (Key Stage 5) pupils prepare for A-Level examinations. At the beginning of Year 13, most students typically submit applications to top British or American universities. The school assists in this process and provides appropriate, objective advice for each pupil.
