Secondary

Student-led education

line.png

Covers five academic years for children aged from 11 to 16 and is divided into two educational stages: Key Stage 3 (Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9) and Key Stage 4 (Year 10 and Year 11). From 11 to 16 years old.

During their secondary education, our pupils develop and consolidate their academic, social and emotional learning at the time in life when they need the most support from us.

Planned learning

Year 7 to Year 9

Our pupils study the curricular subjects of the British system, together with Geography and History (“sociales”); Spanish Language and Literature (“lengua”); and Valencian from the Spanish curriculum. International students also study Spanish as a foreign language. This combination gives our students multiple advantages, as it provides them with different and complementary learning abilities that add up to a comprehensive education.

Furthermore, this approach also allows for the double recognition of their studies, because students can obtain the British qualifications and, if the requirements are met, the Spanish qualifications as well.

From age 11 to 13, pupils benefit from a broad and diverse curriculum, studying subjects from the British curriculum and the Spanish curriculum:

  • Geography and History (“Sociales” in the Spanish curriculum)
  • Spanish Language and Literature (“Lengua” in the Spanish curriculum)
  • Valencian (Spanish curriculum)
  • Spanish as a Foreign Language
  • English Language and Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
  • Geography
  • History
  • Computer Science
  • Art
  • Music
  • Design and Technology
  • German
  • Physical Education
  • Personal, Social and Health Education

International students, who do not have a high enough level of Spanish to follow the Spanish curriculum, can study Spanish as a foreign language in order to learn the language and reinforce their language skills.

Year 10 & 11

Between the ages of 14 and 16, our students choose optional subjects that will prepare them for their future studies. Subjects are divided into compulsory or core subjects and options. All our pupils take the following subjects:

  • English Language
  • English Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
  • Personal, Social and Health Education
  • Spanish Language and Literature (Lengua)
  • Geography and History (Sociales)
  • Valencian
  • Spanish as a Foreign Language (for international students who don’t take Lengua, Sociales and Valencian)

In addition, they choose 3 of the following optional subjects:

  • Art
  • Business
  • Computer Science
  • Design and Technology
  • Geography
  • German
  • History
  • Physical Education
  • Psychology
  • Sociology

At the end of Year 11, our students take the external British examinations (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) which give them access to further or higher education and also certifies that they have achieved the standards required in many areas of employment. They can also use their IGCSE results to apply for homologation with the Spanish ESO (Educación Secundaria Obligatoria).
