Secondary School

The secondary school of ESK provides a seamless progression from Cambridge Primary to KS3, KS4 and KS5. We develop learners’ skills and confidence in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science and add breadth and cross-curricular perspectives. Students engage with a variety of subjects and make connections between them.

All learning whether academic or applied in nature and whether formally or informally assessed, develop skills and competencies, which collectively prepare our students to be successful prosperous citizens in the 21st century.

The school works with students to judiciously select a combination of subjects that will support their aspirations and immediate plans for tertiary or professional studies.

The approach used in school to develop students’ knowledge, understanding and skills will consider their ability in the following:

  • Subject content - application to new as well as unfamiliar situations;
  • Intellectual enquiry;
  • Flexibility and responsiveness to change;
  • Working and communicating in English;
  • Influencing outcomes; and
  • Cultural awareness.

The students are assessed at the end of Year 11 by the IGCSE exams conducted by CIE, UK and at the end of Year 12 by the Advanced Subsidiary Exams by CIE and Pearson Edexcel, UK.
