Our secondary school consists of three key stages. In Key Stage 3 (Grades 7 and 8), our students study English, Maths, Science, Arabic, Islamic Studies, Social Studies, Geography, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Physical Education, Music, and Art. At the end of Grade 8, our students sit for Cambridge Checkpoint Tests in English, Math and Science.
In Key Stage 4 (Grades 9 and 10), students may opt to pursue IGCSE qualifications or alternatively opt to study the Omani GED. On both these pathways, students must study the following compulsory subjects: Maths, English, Arabic, Islamic and Social Studies. Students who decide to opt for IGCSE also have a range of optional subjects to choose from whilst those pursuing GED must study Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Art, Music, Physical Education and ICT. Students write their IGCSE exams at the end of Grade 10.
Our senior students can also choose two separate pathways, either A Levels or the Omani GED. Students at this stage of their academic careers have a wide variety of subjects to choose from, regardless of whether they decide to pursue GED or A Levels. Students opting to study GED must take the five compulsory subjects (English, Arabic, Math, Islamic Studies and Social Studies), as well as four selected subjects.
Throughout Secondary school, students who are exempted from studying Arabic subjects will take the Arabic second language programme, Kalemon, Social Studies in English and either Islamic Studies in English or Global Perspectives.
CAT 4 assessments completed in Grade 8, reveal students’ hidden potential by assessing the other main types of reasoning ability known to make a difference in learning and achievement, providing parents with a balanced profile of the whole child.
