KEY STAGE 3 CURRICULUM (YEARS 7, 8 and 9):
This Key Stage covers Years 7, 8 and 9 – the first three years of secondary education at English School for Girls. All subjects at this Key Stage are compulsory, and students will all take:
- Art and Design
- Coordinated Science
- English (Language and Literature)
- Information and Communication Technology
- Islamic Studies
- Personal Social and Health Education
- Physical Education
- Social Studies
The curriculum and methodology we use is based on the requirements of the National Curriculum for England and Wales, commonly known as the British Curriculum, with some modifications recognizing that we are a school in the Middle East.
All subjects are taught following the guidelines of the National Curriculum, and at the end of Year 9 students will all sit the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum Tests in English. Mathematics and Coordinated Science. This allows each individual student to measure themselves against students in England and Wales, and in British International Schools all over the world, but more importantly allows us, as a school, to benchmark ourselves and the levels our students achieve, against these schools.
