Entry to the secondary school is by two methods ,pupils in junior school who successfully complete years 6 are able to transfer into our year 7 , pupils who have attended other schools will be asked to sit our entrance examination and to provide the final school report of their last school which must give a positive view of academic ability and of good behaviour .

all students entering the secondary school must be fluent in English speaking, reading and writing, homework is an essential aspect of the secondary curriculum, classes are used to give instruction and explanation of new work, students are expected to take notes during lessons and complete writing them up and write essays in their own time to allow for more discussion and support to be given by the teachers during the time in class, formal meetings with parents are arranged throughout the year and a report is written at the end of the each term.

the secondary school is also divided into three departments .


key stage three

this includes years 7, 8 and 9 and is the transition stage from the junior school through to readiness to start courses leading to IGCSE examinations.

the work is often complex and demanding and students must have a positive attitude to work as there will be no allowances made for lack of effort .

the curriculum includes english language and literature, mathematics, science, history, ICT, geography, french, art and PE, islamic studies and arabic language are compulsory for libyan students and are available for students from other countries too, there are assessment tests at different times of the year and an end of year examination is a means of deciding if a student has achieved the standard to progress to the next year.

HIGH SCHOOL

key stage four

this includes years 10 and 11 and is a very important stage in a students education it concludes with sitting IGCSE examinations which decide future studies these examinations are set by UK examination boards under strict controls and security for which the school has had be inspected and approved being allowed to offer them, the exams are prepared in UK and sent back there for independent marking, results are sent to the school several weeks after the exams have been taken and are then given out to the students and their families .

in addition to the subjects listed for key stage 3, we offer business studies and able students can be allowed to separate the science syllabus into physics, chemistry and biology as individual subjects, most students will study for at least 8 to 10 IGCSE's including :
first language english, english literature, mathematics arabic, islamic studies, history, geography, ICT, physics, chemistry, biology, french, business studies, art .

to proceed to the next key stage and to be able to rise to very high standard needed to successfully study at that level, students must have achieved a pass at grade A *, A or B in english language and mathematics and at least a grade C in any other subject they wish to study at advanced level (A level ) .


key stage five

this includes years 12 and 13 and is the final stage of preparation for higher education at a university or college or for entering the world of work , the syllabuses are detailed, challenging and require a lot of time for a successful conclusion, however these qualifications are accepted all over the world as a secure and reliable entry requirement for any university or college .

the coureses are over two years and are divided into four units .
students in year 12 will begin studying up to 5 subjects at the initial level which is called AS level and take exams in unit one in the January and unit two in the June of that year , unit one may be retaken in the session if a higher grade is wanted , to progress to year 13 students are expected to achieve at least a grade C in the subjects they wish to study further , some students continue with all five subjects into year 13 but others may choose to stop one or two subjects and concentrate upon gaining a high grade in the other three , three is most universities require for entry consideration as long as they are of a high grade .

in year 13, unit three is examined in the January session and unit four in the June session, the combined grades from all four are counted towards to the final A level pass awarded at the end of two year course .

this system has built in flexibility not available in flexibility not available in other examination systems , if a studen dose not achieve a high enough grade in any unit there is no limit to the number of times the examination can be retaken , at the end , only the hightest grade will be included on the final pass certificate
