  • A Level 100%
  • AS Level 83%
  • IGCSE 91%

The subjects offered provide a balanced course covering all of the academic disciplines needed to prepare students for the senior secondary years and beyond. There is a strong emphasis on numeracy and literacy with 40% of classroom time devoted to English and Mathematics. All of the subjects offered are compulsory.

The Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme has been introduced for Year 7 to 9 students in English, Mathematics and Science, providing a seamless link between the Cambridge International Primary Programme and the Cambridge International Examinations. Advanced classes in IGCSE Mathematics, IGCSE Combined Science and IGCSE Global Perspectives are also offered at Year 10 level.

Subjects include:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Science
  • Art and Design
  • Design and Technology
  • ICT
  • Spanish and/or Chinese
  • Music
  • Drama
  • Physical Education and Health

In Years 11-13, students choose from a range of subjects that will prepare them effectively for tertiary study and future employment. While most subjects will build on skills and knowledge developed earlier, others will provide the opportunity for new areas to be studied and a range of new skills to be aquired.

Students usually take five subjects plus Physical Education.
