Secondary Class (Years 7 to 9)

Welcome to Secondary


Secondary is a small cohort, where pupils receive a great deal of individual, personalised teaching based upon their individual learning needs, in recognition of the fact that all pupils are individuals with different abilities, learning styles and stages of development.

We follow the Cambridge International Curriculum and English National Curriculum, with modifications to reflect our international context, along with a focus on developing lifelong learners prepared for the challenges of IGCSE.
