During Primary and Early Years, children learn several main subjects through Key Stages 1 and 2, always having a great and familiar relationship with their form teacher and learning how to live with their classmates. Secondary School starts by teaching Key Stage 3 and 4 programs which offers varied subject packs such as humanities, languages, sciences and arts, finishing with exams in order to achieve the IGCSE qualifications that are recognized worldwide.
