IGCSE Programme (Years 10-11)

At Key Stage 4, all students embark upon a two-year programme of study leading to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations.

A select group of students can opt out of English Literature.

The core subjects in Key Stage 4 are:

  • English Language and Literature

  • Science

The optional subjects in Key Stage 4 are:

  • Art and Design
