The subjects are taught by native British teachers in a way that encourages students to solve problems, by themselves or in groups, and gain a deeper understanding of the material. The lessons are varied and include the use of technology where appropriate to help personalise and accelerate learning.
Key Stage 3 (Years 7, 8 & 9)
For the first three years of Secondary, a large part of the curriculum is centred on the following subjects: English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Drama, Music, Art, IT and Physical Education.
In addition, Spanish language and humanities (sociales) are taught according to the requirements of the Spanish Ministry of Education, while those new to the language are offered support classes at their level. Pupils also follow a comprehensive personal and social education programme, covering areas such as citizenship, health, careers, and study skills.
Key Stage 4 (Years 10 & 11) and IGCSE
This is the final stage of compulsory education in which students are prepared to take the official IGCSE examinations (International General Certificate of Secondary Education). These official exams are taken at the end of Year 11.
Subjects are now studied in more depth. Some of them are compulsory and decisions must be made as to which optional subjects to take.
