In Key Stage 4, students work towards Edexcel and Cambridge GCSE and IGCSE examinations taken at the end of Year 11 . They follow Core courses in English (an integrated course leading to two examinations: English and English Literature), Arabic Studies and Mathematics.
They also choose five further subjects from an ‘ Options ’ programme: Art & Design; Biology; Business Studies; Chemistry; Drama; French; Geography; History; Computer Science; and Physics.

In addition to preparation for the Edexcel IGCSE First-Language Arabic course, the Arabic Studies programme also meets the Secondary One Arabic, Religion and Social Studies requirements for State (and Private) university entrance. Foreign students study Arabic as a Foreign (‘second’) Language,
which may be examined as a further GCSE subject at the end of Yr11.
The School timetable is organised over one week and each GCSE course is taught for 4 45 minute periods over the week. All students also participate in Physical Education lessons, and have one tutorial lesson each week.

Congratulations to our Year 11 students for some outstanding results. A special well done to the 10 students who gained 8+ A/A* grades.
All GCSE courses are studied at the ‘Higher Tier’ level, and include both Controlled Assessments and final examinations. Controlled Assessments have replaced coursework and require students to complete work at school under supervised conditions, with limited support from their teachers.
