A Level
  • Years 12 & 13 (A Level)
  • Students select three A Level subjects.

    From the diagnostic process, students know their strengths, weaknesses, and predispositions. This should allow them to make informed choices regarding their educational paths in accordance with their potential.

    A Level provides for development in diverse areas, including both academic and artistic subjects.

Personal Development Scheme:

Sixth Form students have to complete two individual projects from 3 types of extracurricular activities:

  • academic (i.e. academic summer schools, internships in scientific institutions,
  • professional (i.e. internships in companies, summer work experiences)
  • charity (i.e. voluntary work, organising charity events)

Co-curricular activities

Students may opt to participate in co-curricular activities such as electives, sport, volunteering, lecture series, and more. Enrichment activities as the important and permanent part of our overall study plan are obligatory for all students.

Monitoring students’ progress and assessment

An integral part of the curriculum is measuring students’ progress through the use of a variety of assessment techniques:

1. Individualised reports for each subject

Each term, each student receives a report outlining the material covered during class, progress made by the student since the previous report, the student’s attitude and level of engagement with the subject, and any recommendations the teacher has. These reports are in turn shared with the students and their parents.

2. End-of-Term examination sessions

Students are presented with an individualised statistical analysis of their results shortly after the exam session. We do not issue grades.

3. One-to-one meetings with mentors

Students have weekly meetings with their mentors to evaluate how they are coping with their studies and to discuss future possibilities.
