At Norwich International School we wish to provide our Secondary students a stimulating and purposeful curriculum, which will lead to qualifications which are internally recognised for entry into higher education or employment.
We wish to develop a strong sense of identity and community in our Secondary school. Our students will benefit from personalised learning with small class sizes and strong learning support. In addition to the academic curriculum, we also focus on the importance of developing the whole child and supporting them to become responsible members of the community.
Students are assessed regularly throughout Key Stage 3 and their progress is monitored against their target in each subject to ensure they are working to their full potential at all times and working towards their IGCSE courses. At Key Stage 3 (years 7, 8 and 9) we deliver the full curriculum of core and foundation subjects to enable our students to prepare effectively for Key Stage 4. At the end of Key Stage 3 (Year 9) students will be asked to select subjects to study at IGCSE level.
IGCSEs are internationally recognised qualifications, administered by examination boards in England and Wales.
All students in Key Stage 4 study GCSE examination courses: English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, and at least one Science subject together with five optional subjects. In addition, they study core subjects: Physical Education, and Thai. The two year courses lead towards IGCSEs which are awarded at the end of Year 11.
