Key Stage 1 lasts two years; KeyStage 2 for four years and Key Stage 3 for three years. We organise teaching in this time as we think is best. We create our own plans term by term and year by year.
In Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 we teach;
English, Maths, Science, German\Italian, Design and Technology, Information and Communication Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music
Physical Education, Personal, Social and health education and Citizenship.
Not every subject is taught in separate lessons. A 'topic' or 'project' approach is frequently used to cover more than one subject.
In Key Stage 4 pupils study a two year course (Syllabus). At the end they sit national examinations, IGCSEs (IGCSE is recognised as evidence of ability by academic institutions and employers around the world). The courses studied are:;
First Language English, English Literature, Mathematics, Combined Science, Information and Communication Technology, History, Geography, Second Language Spanish, Business Studies, Art and Design.
In addition to the examination subjects, pupils complete their general Spanish education and are expected to pass their studies in Lengua (Spanish Language) and Ciencias Sociales, Geografia e Historia (Social Sciences, Geography and History). The curriculum is further enhanced by a number of after-school clubs. These vary thoughout the year and include activities such as Yoga, Gardening Club, Circus Club, Dance club, Drama, Computer Studies, Craftwork, Multisport and Drum Club.
