TEACHING & LEARNING

Sixth Form Curriculum

We offer a curriculum with a British foundation, yet an international approach. Our Sixth Form curriculum aims to allow students the choice to specialise in their area of interests, or maintain breadth in their subjects by choosing a range of A Levels. In-keeping with our ethos of holistic education, all students complete the GIS Diploma, comprising their choice of A Level subjects, social and emotional Learning, the opportunity to complete an internship as part of our THRIVE Programme and an elective of their choice. Our elective programme consists of bespoke courses aimed to develop skills and understandings beyond the scope of the traditional curriculum, allowing students to explore big ideas and direct their own learning.
