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.
These examinations form a bridge between Key Stage 3 and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme in Key Stage 5. All students take a combination of core subjects and choose a number of optional subjects. The examinations are taken at the end of Year 11. During the IGCSE years, the students’ particular interests and strengths vary across a variety of subjects.
A select group of students can opt out of English Literature.
The core subjects in Key Stage 4 are:
- English Language and Literature
- Chinese Language
The optional subjects in Key Stage 4 are:
- Art and Design
- Additional Mathematics
- Business Studies
- Design and Technology
- Information and Communication Technology
- Physical Education
