The Senior School

Students enter the Secondary school in Year 7 (age 11) and are taught by British subject specialists.

Each class has a Form Tutor who has the important role of co-ordinating the pupils’ academic progress, as well as their social development.

A full range of subjects are taught at this level, regulated by the British Curriculum in preparation for IGCSE/GCSE courses in Year 10.
Students have one class of spanish everyday and can choose between German and French two times per week.

Reward Scheme

The achievements of our students are recorded each week. They are awarded certificates from a Bronze to a Diamond to show parents their progress. The reward scheme is an excellent way for parents to keep track of their child’s progress on a weekly basis. The student with the highest number of certificates in each year group will receive the school prize at the end of the academic year.
