Our curriculum at Key Stage 3, which includes Years 7 to 9, matches that of leading, independent schools in the United Kingdom to ensure the highest standards. We provide the National Curriculum for England adapted to match local requirements and enriched to provide a depth of learning across all areas. In accordance with the UAE’s Ministry of Education, we provide Arabic Language, UAE Social Studies and, for Muslim students, Islamic Studies.
Subjects taught in Key Stage 3 lead on to Key Stage 4 (Year 10 and 11) where students complete GSCE/iGCSE qualification examinations. Students then enter the sixth form towards completion of the GCE (A- level) examinations. The school will also offer a range of BTEC vocational courses in the upper years.
