Secondary School

Secondary students learn to become increasingly independent and start to define their own sense of direction for their futures. The range of subjects available for study increases, and over the course of their time in the Secondary School, students begin to specialise and follow their academic interests more closely and in greater depth.

By Year 10 and the commencement of Key Stage Four, the students will select optional subjects to study and start the courses which will prepare them to sit the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations at the age of sixteen. All students sit compulsory IGCSE examinations in English Language, Mathematics and Double Science, and will select a further three subjects from a choice of a third science, geography, history, business studies, art, music, Chinese, design technology, information technology, music and physical education.

Across the Secondary School, students are supported each day by their form tutor, who will meet them to provide individual pastoral support, monitor their academic progress and exchange important notices. Their role is to be a constant point of contact between the student and the School, and to provide a focus for parental communication. Students are also offered more opportunities to rise to leadership positions, whether this be in the Student Council or heading up their own school initiative together with their peers, supported by members of the teaching staff.
